Island Sunset

I was leaning against a chain link fence that was mounted on top of a breeze block wall to take this photo. My dirty truck was right there in an overcrowded neighbourhood, still, the camera never lies.

I notice the sunset is one of the few things I never take for granted. If you take a quiet moment with the changing sky inevitably your disposition is improved. The metaphorical final reluctant pull on the curtains ending the day but starting the excitement and possibility of the evening. Which in my world is predictably dinner with good company and a movie, where excitement and possibility know no bounds!

Absolutely beautiful picture but, unfortunately, your poetic writing is rather spoiled by getting your No/Know the wrong way round!!!!!
Trust your Ma to jump on that particular error.

A picture to paint though :-)

Nice photo Sharon, makes me realise I should take my camera with me more often as so many beautiful photo ops go un- actioned!

Lano,

So I guess that’s my career as contributing writer for……well just about anything bollocksed up! ‘Kinel Mater what would I do without you(?)and I promise I do know the difference-error corrected.

Lano:Mate-do it. How about a gallery of the faces that stand in line behind you at the coffe store every morning. Judging by your own portrait you'd be a natural at it!

Hey don't worry Sweetheart, when you are a contributing writer your secretary will correct your spelling mistakes. How do you think I came to be an eagle-eyed reader? - doctors are the worst at grammar and spelling and don't let me get started on their penmanship!
Don't mind about the coffee - that's eagerness to get the words out of the finger ends :-)

Still a gorgeous picture which I have run off and intend to have a go at painting.

Great Picture!
If I remember correctly, you're entering your 47th year on this planet this month? If so, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Lim, totally unfair on this Mater telling all and sundry her baby is almost 47 - this information totally ruins the little white lies I try to get away with. How can I be 53 when you tell the world her age? Thanks for nothing.

Mater, tell everyone she is your sister, so you can still stay 53.

I didn't think of that - I could go even further and say she's my twin :-)
