Morning Mug: Arouse!


Some of the photographer’s notes from the field, which I always enjoy:

I was shooting on the pier when it started to downpour. By the time I got to shelter at the carousel, I was drenched. I waited until the rain let up a bit and as I started to leave I saw the incredible glow of the sunset behind MCU park. The photo does not capture how gorgeous it was.

    I love that she quite literally captured the letters “ROUSE” in all their colorful glory – this Morning Mug truly defines the meaning of the word: to awaken; to bring out of sleep; cause to feel excited.,,,great photo!!
