Before I drove up the mountain, I went to one of my favorite spots on West Carson Street. This is what made me decide to head up to Mt. Washington to catch the incline in the snow as the sun set.
The setting sun and the lights coming up from the pool made an interesting contrast of color and light. The photograph has limitations in illustrating the mood.
You could really say it glowed-
We spent a good part of the day together, Maura (3) and I. Her brothers and sister at a swim meet for hours.
Got jammied up for nigh time.Then came out into the setting sun with Murphy and danced around in the driveway.
The angle of the sun does amazing things as it prepares to slip away for the day. Had just the iPhone with me.
Sunset photos in my library are just not exciting enough. Sure there are some intense colors, some trees in silhouette, the city, and a bridge or two but I wanted sunset with something HAPPENING! And I remembered the wonderful July wedding of colleague BobbiJo and her husband Tim. Plus the bonus of the niece in the cowboy hat holding the Bride’s dress.

Words can fall short
to describe a feeling
A camera can catch
the colors, light
there in person
looking up to the sky
watching the sun set
the camera feels insufficient.
Old seltzer bottles, a birdcage, the texture of the wicker, some stained glass at dusk. J’s front porch with the sun sinking behind. Condensation inside the old glass, the metal tops. Artists usually arrange inanimate objects to create a still-life to paint or draw. This was already there, waiting. But then it is an artist’s house.
