Early Bird

Back in March we were staying in one of the beach houses on Camp Lejeune when I spotted this gentleman setting up for a sunrise shot. I was on the balcony sipping coffee still undecided if I wanted to participate as well. What got me motivated was I saw what I thought were wings on his tripod legs. So I loaded up my Yashicha and made my way down onto the beach. Come to find out, after some conversation, he was a retired Airman from Ashville enjoying the beach for a few days as well. Also, the "wings" on his tripod legs were umbrella bags you can find at some businesses to put your wet umbrella in. Genius.
