Hirose River in Sendai, Japan

One night in July, I had stayed awake working on my Art. When I had finished, I realized the sun was starting to rise. I couldn't believe it was 4:30 in the morning. After days of rain, I didn't want to miss the chance of enjoying the sun, so I set off on a long walk. I didn't have the energy to climb a zillion steps to get to a Shrine, so I set off toward the river walking trail. By the time I got out to the river, it was closer to 6AM. It amazed me how many people were awake and taking their morning walks. This man and older woman, perhaps his Mother or Grandmother, were across the river. I had to use the zoom lens on my camera to get a view of them.

And I'm so impressed by your dedication to your art! I bet you had a nice long nap today, after being awake all night AND then going for a morning walk! :)

An early morning walk is wonderful and how lovely to see the couple you photographed. (Sleep is good too, though ;-))
