Dawn, October 5, 2016

I started firing the kiln today at 6:00 AM. Being outside and it was dark, I decided to take sunrise photos. In the desert, sunrise is either spectacular or bland. This morning was bland.


6:05 AM. Kiln s lit and warming up.


6:06 AM. Sun lighting the eastern sky.


6:07 AM.


6:15 AM


6:20 AM


6:16 AM facing west.

I’m still working on composition of my shots, where I put the focal point, and where I aim the camera for a light sensor reading. Another 2000 or so shots, and I’ll start to get good at this.



I retired from the Public Defender Dept. November 12, 2015 after 21+ years as a criminal defense attorney. Now, I'm a full time multi-media artist and writer starting on a new adventure. As an artist, I create with beads, fabric, fiber, and ceramic clay. Sometimes separately; sometimes in assorted combinations. You can find my on-line store at:
