Sometimes I search out the sunset. I plan my day around the moment. I find it’s well worth it every time. Other times, well the sunset finds me. It finds us all. We can be at an event or perhaps just living life and “wa-la” the sunset causes us to pause. We watch it. We enjoy it. ( Well, I do)
For me, many of these times, I take out my iPhone and snap an image. It may not always be an award winning shot, but it reminds me of the moment. It reminds me of where I was and what I was doing. It marks time. Happy times.
When I attended a Mexico Tourism Board roadshow last year, an event that sparked me to write Why I Love Mexico, I had such a moment. The event, held at the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle had a view of the Central Park. When we mingled over cocktails, tasty Mexican appetizers and discussion about the life size photography display I headed to the window. I noticed a spectacular shine as the sunset reflected across the park. I took an image. I think I even discussed the sunset with Secretary of Tourism Gloria Guevara Manzo when we chatted. We discussed how Mexico has some spectacular sunsets too, but make no mistake this moment belonged to my home town. It belonged to New York. Enjoy.
Happy Sunset Sunday
Stay adventurous, Craig
