Just thinking about looking at my pictures from last night had David Bowie in my head all day. As with most of the music of my youth I can sing the song but have no clue in the world who sang it, I looked it up.
It really was a no brainer. Friday night at Krate, with live music, this time from the 70s and 80s. Music and dancing for photo ops, plus the timing would include the sunset, and even if a storm blew in there would always be the food. I opted for the same thing I got last time, a frozen sangria and the Southwest egg rolls from Blush.
I leaned forward off the couch, curious to check the transom over the front door. It was a few minutes past eight and I wondered if the sunset had been pretty. The color I saw sent me out the door to check further, and I found this.
The pretty sky last night made me decide to head out the door to see if the sunrise would also be nice, and it was. So the feature photo was this morning’s sunrise, as is the one below. Right outside the door…
Day two had us waking up to news of the flooding and storms in the Midwest, and I wasn’t so sure that we wouldn’t have to drive right through that weather. We did, but only for a short time and then we seemed to be skirting it as we continued. The weather on day three was great, and we reached our destination just in time to enjoy our first bowl of clam chowder in Plymouth, MA. Two tired people walked out of the restaurant and into some beautiful sunset color, and there we were without our cameras, but the best camera is the one you have with you and we are never without our iPhones. Looking at the photos in the iPad this morning and I was amazed. I hope they look as nice to you.
If you like to shop my friend’s location is the place for you with it’s multiple, and very nice, shopping centers within a few miles. But I have lamented the lack of a great spot for the sunrise and/or sunset, based on the fact that I want to see all the way to the horizon line, and having some water for reflections seemed to me to be a must. But I will admit that going out the door for 10 minutes total, shooting a few pictures, and then having my feet up and ready to watch TV in no time flat has it’s advantages.
The race was on. My friend reported that the thunderstorm that had just pummeled his neighborhood was heading to my neighborhood. But from the look of things at that moment I thought it was worth the couple of minutes it would take me to get to the pond in my park andwatch. I thought maybe the clouds would light up for a few minutes, but the whole scene grayed over and I headed back to my house. And then the sky did show some pink so I turned the car around and went back. Those thunderstorms did arrive eventually, but I’m happy they held off as long as they did.
