Waiting for the Sun to Set

Last evening I went to a friend's massage business to shoot their first anniversary party. It was a great time with lots of nice people, great food and beer.

On the way home I decided to stop by a beach and shoot the sunset for a project I'm working on. And, as you may know, the sunset takes awhile, but I found the time spent standing on the boardwalk very productive. I took the time to think about some relationships, past and present, and really contemplate what happened and what might. I really studied the water and the way it moved and the light played on it. I went through my camera menu and tried some different settings I have never used. And I just relaxed a bit.

It seems that working full time and having several side jobs writing and shooting pictures I am always on the run or thinking about where I need to be next. It was nice to have that time on the boardwalk watching the sunset and just enjoying the moment. Perhaps there is a lesson here?

Yes, when you take time to relax, you become more aware of your surroundings and you can appreciate them more. At least, I've found that to be true for me. I'm glad that you enjoyed your time on the boardwalk. :)
