While walking the other morning, I was once again amazed at the perfect scene created by the morning light, beautiful blossoms and friendly exchanges between strangers. Morningtime in the city really is magical. Alexi Murdoch was the perfect soundtrack for the picturesque scene. I thought, “This is like a movie!” then I thought, “Hey… I’ll make a movie!” And so I did.
These clips were all shot on my iPhone; some yesterday morning, some on a 6 am run, and some while walking to work today. I love it because I feel like I’ve finally captured what it’s really like, and why I love it so much. This afternoon the temperature hit 90 degrees, but earlier on, being outside felt absolutely delicious. In the morning it’s cool and quiet. You can hear birds chirping in the trees. There aren’t crowds. Just people walking their dogs, exercising or heading to work. You can hear yourself think. You can feel the city waking up. It’s my favorite time of day.
