I cut the strawberries and put them on my cereal. I start thinking about the light on the basil leaf as I pour the milk on my cereal. I decide to bring the basil into the living room to check the beautiful morning light from the east. The light changes quickly so I want to check right way. I move the plant around the room but don't see the light I am hoping to find. I look out the window and decide that I would find just what I need there. I take the plant outside, with camera in hand. It is cold. I am only in my jammies. It is really cold. I decide that I can get a quick shot. I put the plant where I think the light is best and realize that isn't the right light. I decide that I am too cold to play around any more with this so go to pick up the plant. I realize that the shadows playing through the leaves look like Tinker Bell. I know that if my daughter was here, she would completely agree. I know if my son or husband were here, they would be shaking their heads. I can't walk away from Tinker Bell, no matter how cold. I take a quick couple of shots and head back toward the door. As I am looking at my LCD screen, I realize I forgot to adjust the ISO so go back to take another quick shots. It is cold.
I start wondering if other photographers are like this. I should ask. Maybe, I'll write about it on my blog. If I don't write it now, I know I never will.
That cereal looks bad.
I am still cold.
Yes, I think it's PADD.
