The Chicago River First Thing in the Morning

As you can from the timestamp on the photo I shot this at 6:49 a.m. I was walking my dog by the Chicago River. This was in 2008 and I didn’t even own a camera phone at that time. I had brought my digital camera along because the previous morning I had seen a lovely crescent moon above the Wrigley Building and I wanted to photograph that. The bad news is that it wasn’t visible that morning. The good news is that I got this wonderful photo in morning light.

I think there is something so gentle about first morning light like this. It seems the day hasn’t fully awakened.
