One of the unavoidable benefits of dog ownership is "walkies". Each morning Kettu and I head out on an adventure. Luckily we are both morning folk. She wants desperately to get caught up on the "P-mail" that has been left recently and I love the quiet newness each dawn brings to the earth. Not to mention, that it is often the only bearable time to be out of doors during summer in Virginia!
The dew is fresh, the birds are singing, and the only other people around are the runners and other dog walkers. So numerous waves and knowing nods also occur. I do take my phone. It is for getting back into the building when I realize I left my keys upstairs, and to take photos. Kettu has learned that when I stop to take photos, she often has almost unlimited sniff time, so it works for both of us.
Here are a few of my recent early morning shots.
