As I left for work yesterday, I wasn't sure if we would have a wonderful sunrise. My instincts said "yes", but as the sun brightened the eastern horizon, I didn't know just how wonderful it would get.
As I walked to the bus stop, facing east, it was just beginning.
On the bus, as the driver drove east, the sunrise unfolded and even the driver remarked on how beautiful it was. I was resigning myself to watching and not photographing because it is difficult to photograph on a bus. But I looked around, and most of the other passengers were staring at their phones, oblivious.
I wanted to scream "People, LOOK OUT THE WINDOW!"
Well, I didn't scream. Just whipped out my phone when we stopped for a light and used my phone for what it is intended for. Photography. (OK, only kidding, my point of view is that a smart phone is a camera you can text and talk to other people on. And, oh yes, the Internet.)
As the driver drove, I photographed. And people continued to stare at their phones. Their loss.
This is what I saw as we drove east. (Please forgive the reflection towards the top of the photo from a fluorescent light.)
