Sunset Season

SunsetFor some reason, we have really nice sunsets this time of year. Plus, I become more aware of them because, around 18:00, my computer monitor gets bathed in gold light. The rest of the year the light from the sunset is blocked, by another part of the building, from entering my office window. These are some photos I took over the past couple weeks and a video I made last night.

Free RiceMy lifetime friend Charley directed me to this site, probably because he thinks my vocabulary needs some work. It’s very simple, very well designed, and a win-win situation. So what is it?

This video is a little sloppy. When I saw the “phenomenon”, ran to get the camera to film it. I’ll have to do a better one some time that’s more centered and with less reflection. But the real question is, can you figure out what it is?

Going Home – Honeymoon Day 14

November 13, 2007 By: erik Category: Complaining, Photos, Travel

Don't call me stumpy!The sun was shining early, so Marga and I got up at 7:00 to have breakfast and spend a few more minutes on a Caribbean beach before packing up the suitcases. We used the morning to take a walk around the hotel and snap some condemning photos to show our travel agent when we got back home. Pretty disgusting, all of it.
