FRISCO — I am, for sure, a morning person and probably 75 percent of my photos are taken before noon. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a good sunset — I do, and many of the Summit Voice photo sets include those end-of-the-day vibes, but I’m definitely at my best and most inspired right around sunrise.

FRISCO — A lot of the morning photo posts are quick hits, when I choose the first image that catches my eye from a particular set.
