2012: Week 36

Sunset over the Thames, HMS Ocean & London. #nofilter #ilovelondon


The HMS Ocean has been with us in Greenwich all summer, as part of the security forces that were staffing the Olympics and Paralympics. I've gotten so used to it being there that I don't even notice it any more. But it's leaving this week, and we will miss it.


Also, i would like to say that I was able to capture both the sun and the moon in the same frame, but alas, I checked the moon cycle and that dot appears to be just a spot on my camera. Sigh.


I chose this for my picture of the week because in a week of such epic sunsets, I was glad I captured this one. I love a sunset picture, but so did my grandpa. He took one in the same spot on the same beach in Florida for years (he had multiple photo albums filled with sunset pictures), so I know that somewhere he is smiling.
