Sunset through a Hazy Sky…

Just days ago, the air in the Pacific Northwest suffered through smoke from some wild fires in Canada. The air quality was bad, with the hazy skies covering the blue. Yet, the good part being the decline of the threatening heat have and awesome sunsets.

I was not around for the height and worst of the air but managed to see this catch this moment last Friday. From the Seattle waterfront’s Olympic Park, I enjoyed this moment of this dim sun falling far beyond Elliot Bay.

Then, I went home.

 

The Spring Behind Us…

I barely noticed the Spring has left.

I think for much of the season, at least for much of the Pacific Northwest, has left brought us cold and rainy weather, full of gloom with lessened sunshine. Such was especially towards the end.

Yet. there were moments. Many of which I either slept through or worked tirelessly on by. Such were the simple walks, enjoying the moments that can not be specialized through any specialized event or happening.

Here are pics of the recent days, of which took place in between the errands and mundane activities of errand-doing and sky-gazing….

Don’t forget the blooms, for they will be gone soon!

My hangout these days in Freeway Park, by the convenience of my work walking commute. It’s my place to read comic books and respond to texts.

That’s all. Now, on to the Summer!

Picture of Today 9/19/2016, the Golden Hour

The sunset earlier today, where I took my time from the earlier evening shop and hustle of getting home, to appreciate a vision that doesn’t last very long. That’s where the sky becomes illuminate, and all around should stay still for the change from night to day. It’s either a sign to go home, or embrace the night.

Such is the golden hour.

Picture taken before the Pike Place Marker, In Seattle. It’s a good place to visit before the sun sets.

Picture of Today 7/26/16, Sunset at Sunset Beach..


A nice sunset at Sunset Beach in Southern California. The day was much warm, and the winds were light for the evening. All came together nice for this time with friends. One among them took his phone out before the sunset to capture a Pokemon in the Pokemon Go game. It was a Psyduck.

Goodbye Spring…

And finally the curtain closes, and the end of another long season is at hand…

What a memorable play thus far! Allow for a brief intermission, while we ponder the events of the past few months. Presidential primaries, transgender bathroom debate, tragic deaths, overhyped movies, unpredictable weather, TV season finales, the rise of VR tech, adult coloring books being a thing, and much more.

There is much to leave behind, as we look to the next act of this 2016 theater. I am on the edge of my seat!!

Over yonder to the Harbor island area of Seattle’s south industrial ports..

The mechanical beasts are finally rested after another productive day. The beautiful sky during sundown was a nice spiritual bonus..

The other side of yesterday, beyond West Vancouver and looking back…

This time, standing upon the observation deck of the summit at Grouse Mountian. The moment, a beautiful one looking southward at the land I love exploring and will continue to do so” for later in 2016. Over the mountains in the distance I believe are the United States. 

I have more to say and show, but the day is late and I am hungry. There will be features and sets soon, promise. But for now, here is a bonus pic with a different lens…
