These photos were taken in Renens, Switzerland, around 8am this morning as that is when the sun comes up here this time of year.
It’s like getting up in the middle of the night if you have to get up at 7:30am. I have been sleeping in until 8:30 most days when I am in fact used to getting up at 7:15am every day. Amazing.
|This whole scene was within 4 minutes, changing rapidly.
It really did change to this bright orange within minutes and couldn’t have lasted any longer than that.
Getting ready to go to school today- International School of Lausanne to help with room decor for the music dept.
Accreditation committee trickling in from Tunisia, France, even Connecticut USA, and various other places. They will all be here by this afternoon.
Big week and weekend at the school. My teacher host, Christopher is head of the school’s accreditation committee, organizing events, meeting the NEASC members as they fly into Geneva, and doing an intensive and fab job. He showed me the reports and they are awesome.
Tomorrow is a meet and greet for faculty and admin. I’ll be the official photographer for this event.
Ready for the Adventure!
Plane at JFK just waiting for us to board. Can`t believe this is really happening.
The carry on bag. Shipped the rest by Swiss Rail thankfully. Carrying just this bag was enough. It did have wheels but I also had a shoulder carry on. Felt like a pack horse.
Love these clouds.
Little spots of color show up between the clouds.
View of New York as we came into JFK.
These are for my AA friends. A large display in the terminal at JFK. You can tell I had a lot of time on my hands. I have always loved the AA logo. Very sharp and clean.
I will figure out how to turn this photo so you can see the wing. The whole graphic of this photo is what attracted me to shoot it.
|The sunrise really was this color. It was amazing.
SUNRISE in SWITZERLAND
Welcome to Zurich, 8am. It was currently 3am in the states. Rise and Shine!
View from the train to Lausanne. Lot of cows, farms. This was from the correct train by the way. I had taken the wrong train out of Zurich and ended up in a place called Küsnacht. Took train back to Zurich. Found the right one finally. Added a couple more hours to the trip.
View out the windows as we sped by on the way to Lausanne. This was the restaurant car and you could get a little snack, coffee, drinks. After this train I was to take another train for one stop to Renens where I would call home for the next three months. Bienvenue!
