The sun shines on breakfast
London, ON, April 2010
About this photo: If it's edible, we're hoping you'll share it as part of this week's Thematic Photographic. Follow your mouse here to do just that.The scene: Sunday morning. The brilliant sun paints the kitchen a bright shade of happy as we settle in for a quiet breakfast, an oasis of calm before we get on with the business of playdates, choir practice and grocery shopping. I've found a new jar of apricot jam in the fridge, but I hold off on the actual opening and eating part because, yet again, I've got an idea for a picture.
One of the things I love about our house is the way the kitchen is lit in the morning. I'm not a morning person. Not even close. So the prospect of sunlight slashing across the table while I peruse the paper is a welcome one. It won't make me like mornings any more, but it sure opens up the occasional moment of photographic inspiration. This is why the camera generally isn't far away. This is why scenes of everyday ordinariness will never lose their ability to pull me in.
Your turn: Your ideal breakfast. Please discuss.
