The Last Sunset




This month was mostly about photography but I'll be back with more articles next month. In the mean time here's a few more pictures to wrap up the month.

Eye Of The Sunset III




These scenes were patiently captured well over time on calm evenings last year. Each pictures were  probably taken three weeks apart.

Eye Of The Sunset


Couple of years ago I became interested in photography and had been photographing ever since, every chance I get, every time I encounter something interesting, abstract or unusual. But my personal favorite is photographing nature's own sunset.

Looking The World Through An Empty Green Bottle


        It first happened when I was 11 years old, we were moving into our new house and inside the bedroom I found this half empty 7Up bottle. I took it up and placed it horizontally across my eyes and watched the world through it. I was amazed to see how cool and beautiful everything looked and thought to myself, 'If only I could see things like this everyday.' 

       Now, it's been nine years and I tried it again yesterday afternoon. I was lying flat with my back against the bed and my eyes fixed on the ceiling. I took a 7Up bottle and placed it across my eyes just like before and watched the fan, hanging from the ceiling, spinning slowly. This lasted for seven to ten minutes, and I suddenly realized I wasn't feeling the same old feelings, of wanting the world to be seen as green everyday. I realized that it was just a momentary escape from the same old mundane sights of life. I said to myself that I was really stupid back in the days, but then again, those unexplained things were exciting. Now it seems that  there is an explanation for/to everything, thus getting rid of the mystery and excitement that can be created by simple everyday things. If I were even given an option 'to be the kid back then' all over again, I would accept the offer in a heartbeat, anytime, anywhere. I don’t mind growing up, of course problems increase in magnitude but we become more equipped to handle them ourselves at the same time. We learn to think things more thoroughly and logically before making decision, but I'll tell you this, childhood was no crack either.
