I go almost anywhere on foot. Because I like walking, and because it is probably the best and only way to see things and to get to know the city better. It isn’t so unusual for me to come home completely exhausted, too tired to even move around in my apartment. Especially now that I am always taking my camera. School is quite exigent and I realized that I can’t get my homework done if I don’t take my camera with me and shoot whatever interesting situation and place, most importantly, with the right light. I used to be very reluctant to take the camera out, but now I have the feeling of ‘Damn I should have taken that picture!’ less and less frequently so I guess that’s a good sign. Meanwhile I don’t lose thought of the poor French photographer who got killed defending his camera and I continue to be careful.
But yesterday -tired and going out on my last quick errand- I had a ‘Damn! I should have taken my camera!’ feeling, going home to quickly fetch it wouldn’t do, so I had to shoot this with my phone. The sky was strikingly beautiful, and the reflexion on the buildings was only secondary, you could see everyone glancing up, and many cell phones were taken out to take the shot. Damn! I wish I could have do have something better with this fantastic red sky!

Katti, that is a beautiful shot!
I saw a sunset like that about 6 weeks ago when I was visiting Bs As, and I didn’t have my camera with me either — I’d left it locked in the hotel safe. I decided to simply enjoy it, walking blocks and blocks out of my way just to watch the sky.
Thanks, but it was a lot more beautiful then what this picture shows! 🙂
It’sa nice shot! And the sky looked in Patagonia style
Dusk has always depressed me, specially if its a Sunday, the setting sun is disheartening, hateful. That why I always prefer cloudy skies. Yet, I’ll ask you: are you taking a photography course? Is it long? For beginners? What’s it like?
Really? I love sunsets!! Especially when they look threatening… 🙂
I am doing ‘la carrera’ which is a quite intensive 3 year course and gives you the title of ‘fotógrafo creativo’ in the end. That is, if I make it through exams… I am not sure if my Spanish is enough to reproduce all I know on the exams in Spanish, but I am working on that 😉
