Sunrise in My Bathtub

Standing in my bathtub

in my nightie,

camera in hand,

snapping pictures

as a blazing sun burns off the memory of yesterday’s storm.

Not superior planning by our builder,

this picture window for a bath–

but for capturing sunrise souls,


It’s an eastern vista, a bird’s-eye view

except for the other pesky houses in my way.

I wonder if my neighbors think I’m a peeping Tom-ette

as I stand in my bathtub,

in my nightie,

camera in hand?

    I’m jealous, as I have no view of the sunset anymore from house or even my street! I hate it, it hits my soul with a bull whip when I think about my lost sunsets. Can’t wait to move, but enjoyed your photos just the same. Thank you for sharing.

    A good use for a bath. It looks like it’s going to be a good day.

    From your bathtub!!! Hope you know how lucky you are!

  4. Absolutely stunning photos!! Something nice to look at instead of what the weather radar is showing me right now. :O

    • It poured and poured and thundered yesterday. Then snow on the mts. and even the lowest hills! So I went to bed with my camera because I thought the sunrise might be good. 🙂

    Great photos!! If you can see them they are keeping an eye on you, just in case. They should close their blinds…;)

    “Tub with a view” what Realtor wouldn’t jump on that!!!
