A friend had recently joined the Sarasota Sailing Squadron and invited me over for sunset. We tried to stop the sun from setting.
A recent trip to the Keys, my first ever during the month of September, showed many places closed after a hectic season of tourists and afternoon into evening showers but luckily sunsets always presented themselves somehow each evening. Surprised to find this special beam of light after reviewing my plethora of fun photos capturing the trip down. “See you at sunset!”
A mentor of mine in my photography club invited me out for a photo shoot and a bite to eat last night. We met at Ken Thompson Park by Mote Marine Laboratory and The Bait Shop. The weather turned tumultuous quite quickly and I thought about going home. But the water lover in me wanted to stay and play in the rain and get some shots no matter what. The wind rocked my car and the absolute downpour pounded down making it difficult to see or hear anything. It was so much fun! I was there with friends but was still alone which I enjoy. I saw a sailboat out in the distance and put my window down. The inside of my vehicle and everything on my passenger side got soaked but I love this shot. I thought about the sailor who owns the boat, the waters the boat may have traveled, the thrill of it and the next time it will be out again. It just spoke to me.
