The one thing I like about it getting dark early is the fact that will go outside and take pictures in daylight, and within an hour or so, you will be taking photos in the dark. I love taking photos of the car lights, or Christmas light unfocused because the Bokeh effect makes me feel merry, and holiday-ish. (I know it's not a word)
The bad thing: I feel like it's bedtime at 5pm but then I realize it's not, and it makes me happy that I have a few hours left. So I guess that's not a bad thing then. OR maybe I'm just feeling "glass half-full"! :)
P.s. Apparently I ran out of space on blogger to upload photos, so I've been uploading photos on Photobucket ... but for some reason it gives my dark photos that ^ weird effect. hmm...
