and this concludes our week of sunsets (and moonrises–i am incapable of leaving well enough alone.)
this was an evening of no ugliness.
no matter how hard you tried to find a flaw in what you were viewing (i wasn’t btw), there were none to be found. all points of the compass gave and gave you nothing but beauty.
a panorama even produced a delicate line of beauty (with a nod to hogarth.)
after the sun set and as i was walking back home, a patch of gaillardia (aka “blanket flower”, from the family asteraceae - sunflowers) called out to me, “take our picture, too! we’re worthy and just as beautiful as the sunset.” as it turned out, they were right.
