Rude awakenings..." 5 more minutes....pleasee"

Posted by
Sunder (Chennai, India) on 17 August 2010 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

The best part of our sleep is just as the alarm goes off...

Many, I am sure, would trade anything in the world for this part of the morning sleep... I WOULD

The quiet that follows after slamming the alarm clock shut with eyes closed ,
the cosy feel of snuggling up the pillow,
pulling the sheets fully over our head to shut off extra light....
Now, that is heavenly...hhmmmm..

I know the feeling of wanting more sleep. Nice composition!

Excellent! The lighting is perfect. I'm not a morning person and press the snooze buttom quite a few times before I'm able to drag myself from the bed...

This is a wonderful image - and it certainly "speaks" to me, let me tell you! I have worked in the "salt mines" for 37 years + and am have long-since grown tired of it. I need an extra 5 years...may I have an extra 5 years??? :-)

I like the look of the darkened room giving the shot an authentic feel. Nice action shot and accompanying comment strikes a familiar note with most viewers. Well done.

Pic tells a story. The caption is especially well written. And oh, I have that very clock -- and four other windups for backup ;p.
