Not being a fan of the AM, I don't often get to see the sunrise. I try every time I go to the beach to get up early at least one day to see it, but without fail, it never happens. This past year I set my alarm and even got out of the hotel bed (more effort than had been made in previous years), but when I looked out the window and saw how dark it was, I decided it wasn't worth it...and it was also a little creepy. That early in the morning is only good for one thing-sleeping.
So this morning, when I was headed back to Fairfax from BWI at 4am, it occurred to me that I would be awake for the sunrise and maybe I should think of a good place to go for photographing it. What I ended up doing instead was sleeping in my car outside of my sister's apartment until she was awake. Then, once she was up and let me in, I proceeded to sleep some more. Sunrise? What sunrise? I'm beginning to doubt it even happens anymore.
