A new sunrise in our lives

They say that a photo reveals a lot about a photographer. Well, this one does, but only because of its rarity. This, I think, is the first sunrise picture I have posted on New Orleans Daily Photo.
That is because they have sunrise at the wrong time. If it were in the middle of the day, it would be a more convenient time for me to shoot pictures. But they always seem to have it right at the end of the night before I wake up.

That said, this is a very appropriate shot for our lives. Linda and I have moved back to Beaumont, TX. The opportunity came up suddenly and she had to be at her old job quickly. She used to work for Rita Recovery -- a Methodist program to help needy people recover from Hurricane Rita. Before the recovery was complete, there is now a need for recovery from Hurricane Ike. Including areas like Chambers County and the Bolivar Peninsula which took the surge head on. Also, Bridge City which had about 3,500 homes and only 15 of them were not flooded.

So it we are waking up to a new sunrise.

I will keep posting on this site, but probably less frequently. In a few days, I plan on getting a new site going on Southeast Texas...first, though, give me a few days to unpack... Please. Or as our grandson Sullivan says "Pleeeeeeezzze."

I can tell you that the sunrise out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean is just as nice as the sunsets. You captured a nice one to be sure.

I have sunsets more than sunrises for the same reason. Absolutely spectacular.

I have truly enjoyed your New Orleans blog...even though I only recently discovered your site. This is a beautiful sunrise photo...I agree it is hard to capture them as that is the moment we are just waking or at least preparing for the day to come.

I wish you & your wife best wishes on your move to Texas. Looking forward to your new blog!
