Castles and Sunsets

I happened to have my camera with me as I was walking home yesterday, so I decided to snap a few pictures of that perfect time in day when the sky rapidly changes from the brightness of afternoon to the duskiness of evening in the span of like a half-hour.

There’s only photographs in this entry (and they’re all HDR images, in case you’re wondering why some might seem a little “surreal”), but I just simultaneously posted another entry with a lot of writing below, so make sure to check that out if you want something to read. (I didn’t want to confuse people by putting these pictures in a post about an unrelated topic.)

Now listening to: “J. Ralph – One million miles away”

Yeah, you know you recognise this song! J. Ralph is amazing… Can you believe he doesn’t even know how to read music?

If your memory needs a little jogging to place this tune, perhaps this will help?



(I *loved* this commercial when it first came out like 8 years ago or whatever. This is the extended version – some people prefer the 30-second “short” version because they feel it was “tighter”. Either way, it rocks.)

    you know, i think hdr is overrated, but in this case you make it look good! the combination of gold and blue are striking.

    WOW these are GREAT! I love sunrise/sunset photos and these are especially bee-yoo-tee-full. If I had to pic a fav it’d be #4 — love the colors and perpective :)

    He returns from the void!
    Thanks for the nice long comment and for offering to write me a referral. Maybe I’ll take you up on the latter if my future employer refuses. :)
    I’m afraid I never got the card; I asked my sis to keep an eye out even after I left SF but she hasn’t seen anything of it. I suspect the neighbours might have taken it by accident. :( But of course I got your email! How else would I have sent you your card? So silly.
    Anyway, what news on the postgrad decision and coming back?

    btw, utterly unrelated: I see you’ve a black macbook ; have you had any problems with the mic? Mine has gone nearly deaf, and can hardly pick up sound unless I yell into it (which is why my video was so soft). The isight unit has just been replaced too!
