January 1, 2009: 4:46 p.m.
There is beauty in the hood!
As soon as I brought the groceries in the house, I took out the trash while still in my heavy outer wear. Tossing refuse in the dumpster, I happened to look out to the west and saw this glorious sunset forming.
I zipped back into the house and grabbed the camera. From my front porch, I was able to shoot several shots of the horizon, above the roof lines, as the colors began to swirl and deepen.
What a wonderful omen. The first day of the new year ending on such a lovely note sets the tone for good things to come. Orange is the color of creation, joy, activity...all elements I want to capture in my life....as easily as I was able to capture this blazing sky.
