Construction Worker in Morning Light

Along the Esplanade

Redondo Beach, California

September, 2016

On this rare occasion I woke up just before sunrise and decided to walk down to the cliffs overlooking Santa Monica Bay. They’re only a block away so it wasn’t exactly a long walk. The day was overcast and the lights of distant freighters ploughing their way past the mountains above Malibu and Pepperdine were just orange and white blobs. The eastern sky was brightening and on the roof of a new apartment complex I saw a group of construction workers, mostly in silhouette, milling around. I wanted a single worker caught in the morning sky. I didn’t have a long wait.
