Last April 4th I woke up a few minutes before 4am and took this picture:
You might be wondering why I woke up at that hour. Why would I get up at 4am just to take a picture? It wasn't necessarily for the shot, it was to take part in a 'round the world event called the 4am project.
You can read more about my experience last year at this older post: It's 4am, do you know where your camera is? As I mentioned last year this project was started by Karen Strunks to "gather a collection of photos from around the world at the magical time of 4am."
My first photo for the 4am project was a setup shot taken out of my window at a nearby streetlight. This year my goal is to scout out a spot ahead of time and head out away from my house to capture the image. It's not gonna be easy. 4am is a tough our to get up at.
Anyway, I have a month and a half to figure out what I'll capture, so if you have any ideas leave them in the comments. Until then, let the countdown begin:
