This was one tough month.
Believe me, I’m not making excuses. I needed to get out with the camera more, and I know it. Alas, there were things that just made it a little hard. The worst part? I had some good opportunities for this theme and screwed them up.
Live and learn, right?
I knew this would be a tough theme for myself, and for others. So with that in mind, I’m looking forward to seeing what everybody else comes up with for this one.
With this set of photos, I decided to push my interpretation a little. Well, for a couple of them. I usually try and stay by the book, but this month I had to “expand” things just a tad. I know others do it sometimes, so I’ll steal the idea this month.
Anyway, my photos are below. The linkup is at the bottom. Remember to come back in a few days so you can go visit other people’s posts. Drop some comments and make this community shine!
So, without further delay, here are my five for the month!
This is my breakfast many mornings out of the week. I know how it usually is with my blood sugar, so it’s a good thing. And, let’s be honest, Cheerios are pretty awesome.
The weekends will often be a time to go away from the cereal, be it more like an early lunch or whatever. How about an egg/cheese/bacon sandwich? Yum!
3. Wake up!
This is when I’m usually getting up during the week. My phone serves as my alarm clock.
4. Waking up
OK, so technically this wasn’t a morning shot. But I assure you Cameron had just woken up! I took this shot of him as he arrived with his parents. It’s all about interpretation!
5. Early game
OK, so this may have been early afternoon. But they had been getting ready in the morning. So… kind of morning. Sort of. My niece (6) at nationals. The weather did clear up more in the afternoon…
That’s my five and now it’s your turn!

Omg..You do get up really early. I had to be up at 6.15am this week to get a train, which was a shock to my system..it was worth it though.
I liked your angle on the theme this time and your breakfasts look good. Nice action shot of the football players too.

If I get enough sleep (not always the case), getting up early is nice. It’s those days when I go to bed too late that I feel like I am paying for it the next day.
I’m a big fan of chocolate Cheerios as well as those yummy egg sandwiches. Bacon always makes the morning seem a bit better. 🙂 Cameron seems to have a stormy look about him in your shot….maybe he’s not a morning person either? You beat me up by a mere 10 minutes during the week…you win! Love all your shots and interpretation.
Some of the other Cheerios flavors are good, but I still love sticking with the original. And I bet I don’t always beat you up by 10 minutes … the alarm might, but that doesn’t mean I am always up! Snooze is a wonderful thing!

I had a hard time with this theme as well. I’m a morning person, and I love getting out early with my camera, but somehow I froze up on the theme this month. The ground also froze up, which may also be an explanation about not getting outside in the morning.

I think it’s the beauty of this challenge. Sometimes the themes are easy, sometimes harder. Even for me and I am the one who announces them! I always hope to have ideas, but they don’t always come to fruition!

I’ll get my photos up this afternoon. I took them on my cell phone, and it just isn’t cooperating right now to allow me to upload them to the blog.
Hoping the issue solves itself soon.
I’ve got a breakfast photo in my set too. 🙂

Always good to have breakfast with a set of morning photos!
I did it and I enjoyed this challenge. I love the moon,. It was beautiful hanging in the sky so early in the morning. I am glad others were able to be so productive, getting out and about taking wonderful photos of their morning forays. I look forward to the next challenge. In love and light Cheryle
I’m glad you enjoyed this challenge! Thanks for being a part of it!
November did seem to be a tough month.
Love the picture of Cameron. There’s something about close-ups of little kinds that is so intriguing.
Your breakfast sandwich looks yummy!

I agree with the closeups of kids. It really is a nice way to capture them in life.
I miss early soccer games!!!! Your second photo… oh my goodness… I can TASTE it. YUM! These are awesome. Except 5:30 a.m. THAT is not awesome. But the photo is. 🙂

I don’t mind some things early, but having to get to a game too early — to watch — can sometimes be hard!

Cheerios! I grew up with them and I still enjoy them, even occasionally eating handful or two (without milk) for an afternoon snack. I still like the plain original ones best, the the multigrain variety make a nice change sometimes, too.
That bacon and egg sandwich looks pretty good. I’m going to keep that in mind when I’m thinking about what to make for breakfast next weekend.
I usually get up just a few minutes later than you do during the week. Mr. GeoK is usually well into his morning workout by then (don’t know how he does it).
I think it’s perfectly reasonable to interpret morning as just waking up or early. After all, if you were working the night shift, your morning would be sometime in the later afternoon. That That niece of yours is sure having an amazing soccer season. Good for her!
Looking forward to seeing what you’ve got lined up for us in December. Thanks for continuing to run this challenge. Always enjoyable!

Cheerios are awesome. They are great as a snack or a meal, which I always like! I wouldn’t mind being able to sleep a little later during the week as I’m not one who can go to be too early, but I’m usually quite adaptable to it all!
I think my favorite is the Cheerios picture.
I have just as many alarms in my phone too. All in an effort to get up in the morning. Ughh! Not a morning person.

Those alarms on the phone can really come in handy, don’t they? 😀
Nice shots! I love your first picture – it’s just such a great photo for ”morning theme”

Thanks so much, Jana!
