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.
Taken in Dublin, Grand Canal Dock area in August, during the 2010 Culture Night. I was lost, without a map, asking people for directions. And I found this location and light.
