dreaming in the shadows of the Sleeping Maiden

Mt. Tam glimpsed from the intersection of Corte Ramon & Via La Paz in Greenbrae

Apparently, Aristotle went on record to say that “we are what we repeatedly do.” Well then, this “daily photo of Mt. Tam” business of mine, does that make me a photographer? After nearly 5 months of doing this repeatedly, I can safely say that snapping that picture has become a habit. Whether the art of seeing the mountain anew has become the habitual practice of an art or just routine inhabited by the same vision, is hard for me to to tell. That I have been venturing out late in the day to capture a shot might be saying something about a little weariness on my part — or it may just be that around this time of the year, and from this side of the mountain, the light goes into high gear in the hours before the sun sets.
