Sunset on Summer
'Summer's Here For Ever!'
Sad to say.
Mr Cooper was wrong.
It started as a simple project: take a picture of the sunset, everyday, all summer long. Too bad sunsets don't work that way. Not that I can blame them. Who wants to work all summer long?
I don't know if I like this image because it's a high quality photograph... or because the evening at the lake stood out; and so, the memory is special.
As in, which came first the memory or the photograph? At this point, they're completely intertwined.
Yeah, this one is definitely about the image, capturing an imaginary moment in time.
I can't help but think the photograph would be better if I'd waited for the twirling riders to to get to the top. But maybe that would have changed it from a sunset picture into a picture of carnival ride, as occurs in a later post.
But like all moments, 'blink your eyes and it's over.'
And believe it or not, that sounds like the lyrics to another song. Too bad I can't remember how that particular ditty goes. Eh, what are you going to do? Clearly, it's just the
Story of My Life
The real question, however, is whether the camera is facing the right way down those tracks in the last image? Is that the direction I'm headed? Or maybe I should be looking the other way? Or better still, maybe I'm already where folks wind up when they've already gone and rode off into the sunset. Of course, in movies, where sunsets are featured, that's often when the vampires and werewolves come out, so maybe I should stock up on the silver? Or just be glad this particular sunset came at the end?
