Early Morning Tea

As the sun rises over the Sandia Mountains on the east side of Albuquerque, New Mexico each morning, it washes the back deck with beautiful, warm light. For quite some time now I've wanted somehow to capture some of that beauty in a photograph.

In 1945 my dad was among the first American troops sent to Japan after the bomb where he bought this tea set and had it shipped home to my mom and for years I've thought about making a photograph where I could incorporate at least part of the set.

One morning early, I simply put the two together, tea set and early morning light.
