Sunsets in Seattle

Gina Todorovich

Sunsets in Seattle soothe my soul. I realized this last night as I walked along the water, heading from Pike's Place Market over to the Olympic Sculpture Park. Along the way I made some new friends who, seeing my SLR, asked me to take a picture of their group with the bay in the background. When we crossed paths again and I heard they were going to do a jump shot, naturally I volunteered to take the picture so the whole group could get in the shot. Also opted to use my camera after two failed attempts with her iPhone. I think I'll start offering to do that more often.

Once I parted ways with that crew (approximately 10 seconds after one lit up a joint...coincidental timing, I swear), I wandered by myself, stopping to take pictures of the bay, boats and skyline. The sun sets so slowly here it seems. I'm not sure how long I wandered around Seattle. I go into my happy place when I'm walking in a city I like. I have little idea about how long or how far I walk; I just know how centered and content I feel. As social as I tend to be, I'm actually an introvert and I need time to myself and crave silence from time to time in order to recharge. This trip is really helping provide just that, along with the chance to spend time with family and friends I don't get to see very often anymore.

Tonight some of my family took me out for Thai food, followed by gelato and a trip down to the Chittenden locks. It was another gorgeous evening and I enjoyed watching some boats go through the locks, a train cross a bridge over the water and just spending some time with family. I didn't bring my camera cord for uploading pictures, but I did have my cellphone on hand at pretty much all times. So enjoy some teaser images and look for more pictures once I return to DC. Until then... 

         

A Winter Sunset in DC

Gina Todorovich

The first winter I lived in the DC area, my friend, Milli, and I took some pictures of one of the most beautiful sunsets I'd ever seen. My laptop at the time crashed, and while I managed to recover some of my files, regarding the sunset pictures, only the empty "DC Sunset" folder could be found. Empty. That's even worse than not having the folder at all. What a tease.

Well, I decided this weekend that I would brave the cold in hopes of a comparable sunset. So I layered up and headed out. I decided to stop by the Hirshhorn to kill a little time, warm up and enjoy the art, of course. Oh, and by the way, the top level couches in the room that overlooks the National Mall (not a shopping mall, as I learned when I first moved here) . . . quite possibly the comfiest couches ever. Just so you know.

The sunset ended up being far less spectacular than the original one I remembered. On the flip side though, I think this was the first time I've seen the Tidal Basin paritally frozen over, and it was gorgeous the way it reflected the setting sun.

I have to be honest that my Project 365 has been dominating my photographic efforts and energy. Some days I just want to be lazy and almost forget, but I'm keeping strong. And it was great to have a selection of pictures to choose from for Saturday's picture and even share as a blog post. I'll try to keep fighting my lazy tendencies and desire to hibernate.

Is it spring yet?!
