This evening, our local photography group had a meeting for sunset captures at Stewart Creek Park. It was nice meeting up with some photo friends and have a chit chat about special photo places, again. I always enjoy these field meetings.
While I was harvesting some beans, cherry tomatoes and a beef steak tomato, I watched this beautiful sunset. The weather is perfect for seeing the sun go down. It is warm enough (90+ºF) to avoid the mosquitoes at this time of the day. In another half an hour, it’s a different story.
Sara played ball with her peers on the street. After she escorted her friends to their houses, she sat next to me in the grass to watch the sunset in the frontyard. We were talking about bugs and the swallows, which nest two houses down from us. I tried to photograph a bug. But it flew away, before I could capture it. Seconds later, one of the swallows caught and ate it. “Ha, Karma!” I said. Sara wanted to know, what was the meaning of Karma. While we enjoyed some ice cream, I tried to explain it to her. But I have that feeling it will take another couple of years, before she will understand the true meaning of Karma. In the meantime the sun went down, and the clouds started to get all shades of pink, orange and purple.
