The Beauty of Sunset - From Different Places and Time
Call me an eclectic person. My various interests, as I spilled it out here in HubPages, include photography. When an announcement for another contest opens this month of November 2011, focusing on prose/poetry, creating writing and photo galleries; I didn't hesitate to recall what will be my most vivid photography series that was not published yet.
And my final choice is sunset. Yes, sunset! I had to drag my feet along the bay walk of Manila Bay in order to scout for a perfect timing, but photographing a perfect sunset is often smeared by pollution.
You can just imagine the smoke coming from the chimneys of anchored ships, blocking and adulterating the horizon.
It pestered me to think that I had to go back to the province in order to shoot a very fresh sunset. Still, I'm still irritated with the burning of rice stalks by the farm-helpers, also shading a cool angle.
It's as if I become a stealer of this perfect subject.
So, whenever I have time during my overseas work as a seafarer, I always carry my simple digital camera in order to record the sunset.
I've recorded my photographs on blank CDs and DVDs for future. I didn't make any slideshow regarding it, but I might as well include it here. I also shared it on Facebook, so, downloading those selections come in handy, while writing this hub.
Sunset may mean or denotes mix feelings or emotions as we age. There will be happiness as we remember happy memories and also sadness as we recall sad episodes in our lives.
Vivid hues of amber red or euphoria of pastel colors will transport you to the memory lane in your mind and reminisce bittersweet experiences that makes your as a human being.
