I am an Early Bird. Every morning I wake up at 6 a.m., drink my coffee, light up a cigarette, skim through the latest news feeds, while getting ready for work. How else could I be able to capture such moments like the one right before the sunrise? The pictures below entail a story back in 2011, at Mamaia Beach, Romania. They remind me of the things I would miss out on life if I’d chosen to sleep my way through it.

Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.
