Sunset, May 4, 2010
Geoffrey and the Prairie Sunset captured by C3PO.
Randal delights us with blue prose. I mean prose about the color bleu.With bonus poetry.
Last night I sat on the deck and watched the sunset turn the sky a baby chick yellow until it faded to a pale buttery light behind the backdrop of the tall pines that stand guard over our back lawn. Somewhere in that moment I thought I should take a photo for the day when sunset is the subject for this 30 Day Photography project. I took another look, closed my eyes to capture the imprint then picked up the book I'm reading - The Egg and I by Betty MacDonald - and continued to read and guffaw until I snorted red wine through my nose.
Silly me. Today the subject is sunset. Thank goodness for all the photos I have stored over the years (years now?) at Facebook (Flickr won't let me have all my old photos until I pay up my pro fee). There's a cautionary tale here about how we make decisions about our intellectual and artistic property and content vis a vis technology, but damned if I can suss it out. It's Sunday, I'm still feeling like muck and just want to get back to that book. Betty MacDonald is hysterically funny in an Aunt Betty kind of way. And if you're related to me, you know what that means. And maybe you do even if you aren't.
Not that I don't love you for being here. You know I do.
