As I have mentioned before, I don’t like direct photos of sunset. I like sunsets, but 99% of sunset photos are just plain cheesy and bring back very unpleasant memories of an ambitious art student with a knack for abstraction, who was constantly told that sunsets, flower compositions and naked women paintings will sell, and abstract art won’t, and therefore she should stop doing what she wants and loves, because nobody has the time to do what they want if they want to make money. I hate people telling me what I should do and absolutely nobody has the right to do that when it comes to art. So here’s a sunset photo without a sunset. Well, almost.
Taken in Maastricht, Netherlands.
My first thought was that the challenge was not about the current time of year (I think of it as Autumn), but about falling. Well, I suppose it could be both, as it isn’t specified. I couldn’t think of anything cool for the latter, so here’s an Autumn shot.
These days have been sunny and very warm and generally lovely in Netherlands. I wonder what it’ll be like when I go back to Ireland on Saturday.
I’ve been looking around the house and checking out what angle I could shoot for the “Home” theme. But it just wouldn’t be right, because this house is not my home. Not yet, anyway. I don’t feel at home in it, although it’s getting better, and I’m getting used to it.
So the only photo I can publish for the home subject is one from my photo archives, taken in my previous apartment, where I still feel my home is.
