Saratoga 6AM

Had a photoshoot in Saratoga this morning. I got the chance to walk around town at 6am. The city has so much more charm without the push of thousands of summer invaders. I worked in Saratoga a few years back and I got a chance to know the city in the early morning hours, the hours before the world wakes up and complicates matters. My favorite time of the day in any city is the few minutes just before the sun comes up and the street lights do to sleep for the day. Being up that early is a minor form of rebellion. In an overpopulated world where space is available at a premium, having a city to yourself for a few minutes is deliciously non-conformist.
