The Yellow Brick Road and the Astronomer

65/100

 

This afternoon, after I had watched the movie: The Color Purple and another approved photo on vogue.it I felt ready for today's shot. I went out aimlessly to our inner court and I glimpsed the golden light shining through the glasses above the door. But when I started to tool up my stupid tripod I also began to be angry... and I just simply didn't felt like doing it anymore. I just stood there, inoculating with my dog, and felt that I was becoming more and more low-spirited 'till I became sulky. In the mean time the sun just continued it's usual activity - alias goin' down. I took my bike and drove angrily. On the way to this place I decided something: I will sit down and watch how the sun goes down, without taking a single photo. I thought this will be my 'punishment' for being so flighty. But - as you can see - I just couldn't. When I glimpsed this my vim came back, and I felt free.

 

Then I came home and realized that my autofocus actually messed up this photo. But then I looked at it a little bit more, and I started to like it. And now I'm happy with it... so I will quickly upload it before I change my mind. :) This photo is dedicated to my best friend, who is in hospital right now, because yesterday he and his family had a car accident. But he is quite OK now, and tomorrow I'm going for a visit. I just want to tell you that I've prepared and when the sun will disappear I will put stars on the sky to light your way. People help the people.
