Light at the End of the Day by justeline Light at the End of the Day by justeline
Dark thoughts, dark art, dark night
I’m tired and I have no fight.
Dark poetry, dark words
His photos were a bright spot.
The light attracted me.
Water and sky get my favor
So I look and I savor the light, the beach, the sky.
Photographer, come and laugh with me.
Laughter and light is how I think of your art.
What can I say?
You came and laughed with me
You were a bright spot in my day.

I’m leaving in two days and probably won’t be back for at least three weeks, so I thought I’d leave you with one of my “sentimental value” shots as a farewell.

This shot was taken on February 14, 2009. Yep, St Valentine’s day and frankly I can’t imagine of a better way to spend such a day, or any day for that matter. True, the day was too cloudy to hope for any kind of color and drama in the sky but it was such a lovely afternoon to stay inside and I really wanted to show this place to *KirlianCamera as it always had a very special place in my heart and memories. I wasn’t into the mood for serious photography seeing how colorless the day was so I just strolled along, trying to locate the ducks (yes, this is the place where Splish Splash was shot and yes SnowWhite is still there) when I noticed this rock formation. I liked their symmetry (shameless confession I thought at the time that they seemed to form a heart but I guess it was a side effect of the day :blushes: ) so I thought I’d give it a shot (pan intended).

Indeed that sunset gave no color to the clouds, only the faintest hint of some pink here and there but I liked this shot precisely because of its cool tones. I hope it isn’t too much of a shock to you :giggle:

Hope you enjoy your visit here!

PS This photo is dedicated to ~LavenderMystt for naming it and “dressing” it with her poem and to the photographer who is the bright spot in my days.

But the bottom rock that's slightly to the right DOES look like a heart! :) At least, to me it does! :heart:
