Sunrise is the center of my life.

It’s always nice coming across a park, a lookout, or a laundry service named after sunrise. There haven’t been many of these.

When I compare the photos, with only the composition, the chosen photo is far from my favorite. I’m forever a sucker for a sun partially risen over the horizon, centered perfectly. But I can take that photo anytime, it’s a copout even. But this chosen photo, that tells the story. I chose this spot because it was called Sunrise Avenue and had Sunrise Park. I loved the sun rising through leafless trees. This tells the story.
