Picture Perfect: Sunset Sunday in the NJ Suburbs

Growing up with a photographer father, there were always plenty of prints and slides around the house for me to admire.  As a little girl, I’d sometimes find a random slide laying on the table and curiosity would force me to pause, hold it up to the light, and see what it was all about.

It’s a challenge for me, even to this day, to see a photograph and not stop to appreciate it for a while.  I love the story or stories that every photograph contains.

Even when there are no people in the photograph, or no obvious action, there’s always a story.

Since we all know that a picture is worth a thousand words, I’ll stop writing now and leave you with the story of this beautiful suburban New Jersey sunset by my father…

    • Steve,

      My dad (the perfectionist) will give you a ton of reasons why he doesn’t like this photo. But I’m not going to get into all that technical stuff. It looks good to me! And I agree with you – I think that the color of the car and the color of the sky, especially, are amazing.

      Have a good Sunday!

  1. Wow, I am glad to learn of your appreciation for photos and their story they tell (especially at sunset). This photo certainly tells you a ton, and tops for me is the fact you can see the magic of sunset really from anywhere… including the suburbs.

    stay adventurous,
    Craig
