This evening–after rushing around in a kitchen for nine hours–I rode my bike down to the waterfront. I hadn’t been there in a couple weeks and needed the fresh air…the solitude. In the summer months it is packed with people, but this time of year it is nearly empty. I’ve mentioned many times on this blog that dusk and dawn are my two favorite times of day to take photos, and these photos are reasons why. The light, as it slants away or towards the earth, changes things. As I stood watching the scene in front of me as the sun set and the light changed, I felt truly grateful to see it; to be part of it. These were all taken within a half-hour of each other.
