Chasing dawn

I’ve been waiting to take pictures of the sunrise for so long. I can’t even remember. ūüėÄ And you realize that when the the opportunity presented itself, I grabbed it with both hands.

I talked to Andra about taking photos. I¬†knew that I¬†wanted to take pictures, but didn’t know how, where, when. And considering that I wanted to have my own series and at sunrise (because Stef had one 2 years ago) I wanted to see is Andra was up for it.¬†She agreed, even though the sun rises at 5.30 am.

I woke up the day in question at 4.30 (!! Yes !!) and I prepared, hardly¬†waiting to take the pictures. I phoned Andra 4.50, to wake her up. Nothing. I called and 5. Still nothing. At 5.10 – nothing. I left home. I thought maybe she was out and came home late, and was now sleeping in, in which case I’d have to go to the beach by myself and see what I can do.

At 5.15 I was at Andra’s. I called her – nothing. I called her 10 times – still nothing. I went to her block of flats and called on the intercom only once, just to¬†wake her up. And called once more on the phone. And finally¬†she¬†answered. It was the most beautiful sound of the day.

At 5.30 we left for the beach. We decided to go to Commander in Navodari, hoping that it would be deserted. It wasn’t. And if I think about, there was really a lot of people for such an hour in the morning. But whatever… I’ll leave you with pictures, hope you enjoy them:)

De cand tot astept sa fac poze la rasarit. Nici nu mai tin minte ūüėÄ Si va dati seama ca atunci cand s-a ivit oportunitatea, am prins-o cu ambele maini.

Am vorbit cu Andra sa iesim la pozat. Stiam ca vrem sa facem poze, dar nu stiam cum, unde, cand. Si avand in vedere ca voiam si eu sa am propria serie la rasarit (pentru ca Stef a avut una acum 2 ani) am zis sa vad daca ar vrea si Andra. A fost de acord, desi soarele rasare la 5.30 dimineata.

M-am trezit in ziua cu pricina la 4.30 (!! da!!) si m-am pregatit, abia asteptand sa fac pozele. Am sunat-o pe Andra la 4.50, ca sa o trezesc. Nimic. Am sunat si la 5. Tot nimic. La 5.10 – nimic. Am plecat de acasa. Am zis ca poate a fost in oras si a ajuns tarziu acasa, si doarme dusa, caz in care ma voi duce pe plaja si voi vedea ce voi face.

Pe la 5.15 eram la Andra. Sun – nimic. Sun de 10 ori – tot nimic. Ma duc la scara si sunt la interfon, o singura data, doar doar s-o trezi. Si mai sun odata, la telefon. Si intr-un final fericit raspunde. A fost cel mai frumos sunet din acea zi.

Pe ¬†la 5.30 am plecat de la ea, spre plaja. Am hotarat sa mergem la Comandante, in Navodari, in speranta ca va fi pustiu. Nu a fost. Si daca stau sa ma gandesc, a fost chiar multa lume pentru o ora atat de matinala. Dar ce sa mai… Va las cu pozele, sper sa va placa :)
