Miles to go before I sleep

Life is pretty tough for kids in Qatar during the weekdays. They usually have to get out of bed at five in the morning to catch the school bus an hour later. This means going to bed pretty early even if they do not feel sleepy.

My daughter likes to sneak up and watch a few episodes of her favorite TV shows or very rarely read a few pages of her favorite books before sleep, without us parents knowing. I caught her red-handed a couple of days ago. I just then realized that the night-lamp perched up on the window lit the room beautifully.

Post-processing was done in Lightroom using one of the artistic b&w filters. Forgot which one. This one has a nice sepia-like color. Some levels were also adjusted using Picasa.

The title line is from Robert Frost’s “Stopping by woods on a snowy evening”, one of my favorite poems. I even did a pencil sketch of his portrait from a SPAN-magazine image while I was young.
