Chasing the Sunset

Made this photo during our visit to Istanbul.

Is not necessary to talk a lot about the city, I believe most of the people knows how wonderful city is.

What impressed me are the sunsets in Istanbul.

During sunset the sky become magic. But really magic, with a lot of different colors.

One afternoon I’ve decides to go a bit up to hill to capture this beautiful sunset.

My wife Emma, she was running after me, begging me to stop πŸ™‚ (photographers would understand) πŸ™‚

But i was going up to hill more and more until I realize that I may miss it. The magic moment doesn’t last forever. It last only for 30 to 45 seconds.

And that’s where I took the shoot.

For sure one of my favorite photos.

Sunset, somehow for me the best part of the day.

Some people prefer sunrise, some people like noon. I like sunset.
Exactly that part when you can see the movement of the sun, going behind the hill or touching the water of the sea, so far, but so near.

That few seconds, maybe minutes it’s always open my mind with hundreds of questions.

Most of the time I ask myself if I’m doing right think by being so focused of my career, working so hard for some β€œbetter tomorrow” which may, but it may not come.

Maybe I should just quick everything, take my wife’s hand and hit the road.

Go for some trip around world, visit all that awesome places and enjoy the sunsets all over the world.

How does sunset look like on Chines Wall?

Or Phuket, Thailand.

Or Bali, Indonesia?

Or maybe Bahamas, Costa Rica, Cuba, or other exotic places.

What about Tibet?

Should we go by plane, train, a bike?
Where we gonna stay? Who cares, we would bring a tent and stay under the stars! Yes. That’s good idea.

For sure.

Yes, we are going. Tomorrow I will resign my job and we will hit the road.

And that’s it. Sun is already gone behind the line between sea and the sky.

I have to get back to the office.

My favorite part of the day is gonne s fast.

I have to wait tomorrow to continue the road trip with my wife, happening only in my head!

Maybe I will never get to know how the sunset looks like from the Chines Wall.
