043/366: Morning Walk

I'm helping coach SteelyKid's soccer practice tonight, but that's no problem for the photo-of-the-day blog, as I got that out of the way early:

Scene from this morning's walk with Emmy. Scene from this morning's walk with Emmy.

This is what it looks like when Emmy and I go for our morning stroll these days, a little after 6am. Which is sort of pretty, maybe, but it's a little depressing to realize it's not going to be substantially brighter than this until next March, give or take...

For a brief, glorious moment the time change meant that I didn't need a flashlight for my weekday morning walks with Emmy. Sadly, the inexorable motion of the Earth in its orbit means that we are once again into the zone where the sun isn't above the horizon when we take our morning stroll:…

I did take some DSLR photos today, but the photo of the day is a cell-phone shot from the final soccer practice of the fall for SteelyKid's second-grade team. The last rec soccer practice for the fall 2015 season. SteelyKid is not, in fact, in this photo; she had a belt test for the Elite Team…
Over at whatever, John Scalzi posts a lot of sunset photos. I don't get a lot of those, because for most of the year I need to be dealing with the kids-- wrangling them home from day care, making dinner, getting them to bed-- during the time when the sunset looks pretty.
