Despite the cold, -18C one day, I continue to walk to work, but I have changed my walking route. During the week a different bridge each day.

Bill dropped me of close to downtown, and I have been meeting him at the end of the day, at the same place he dropped me off. The change of my daily walk caused confusion on one occasion, when I, so use to following the same route headed out with my mind full of work, and walked the wrong way! Thanking my lucky stars for the cellphone, I called Bill, and luckily he had his phone with him, so I was left standing on the street corner in the freezing cold for too long.

The walk to work has inspired the morning commute series. Sunrise this week will be just after 8 am, and if the skies are clear we will start to get light in the eastern sky as early as 7:30am. I am looking forward to watching and photographing the changing light over the next few weeks.

Does your daily routine inspire you? How do you inspire your creativity?

Rio San Barnaba, Venice Italy

The travel guides suggest that the Rio San Barnaba is one of the prettiest canals in the area, it is home to the floating barge crammed with fruit and vegetables that was featured earlier in the blog. Quiet at night the canal reflects the lights of the shops and restaurants that line it giving it a friendly and peaceful feeling.
