This morning's "Adventures of the Early Birds" is brought to you by local documentary photographer David Maurice Smith. Tough assignment to search out a story amongst a gusty Sou-Easter, constant rain showers, very average onshore surf and cloudy sky's. But Dave's a pro and he would never shy away from a tough assignment and he'd already emailed through the images by 8am! Dawn is a slightly different time-zone than the all-night Hip-Hop & MC Battles Dave covered during his Roots Project in NYC so it may have been a bit of a shock to the hear the alarm buzzing at 6am. NIce work big fella~! Dave digs shooting people and travel and he's got a knack of bringing out the story in every situation. Enjoy Dave's personal flavour infused in today's Sprout Daily.
