Felicity and Sunsets

Wazzup Pilipinas!

A solitary soul has diverse appreciation. If you're going to look into different eyes, what are the things you’ll stare at?

Last summer, I fell in love with sunsets. Especially when the sky is tainted with colors just enough to keep me staring at it. I think of it as beauty ensconced in smoke and noises. Luckily, I had a lot of chances to see this lovely scene in different ways and I think, they were the highlights of my summer.

First was when I had my photo shoot in the University of the Philippines, Diliman. Just for fun. We started capturing moments and whatnots late in the morning and went home at sunset. We intentionally went home at the golden hour to experience looking at buildings light up as the dark approached. It was a really enchanting scene.

The same thing happened at my second photo shoot at Evergreen, just here in Pasig. The only difference was that there were only a few buildings but nature was revealing. It was also a lovely sight to see.


Next encounter was when our family went to Batangas. It was my father's birthday then. We went home just in time for the golden hour and of course, I saw the ever-fascinating sunset. I saw it in a serene way, for it was a beach sunset. It may not be like the sunsets shown in movies, but it was definitely captivating for me.

There were quiet moments left unwritten here. But these were the moments that were so quiet yet so loud at the same time. It was screaming out the beauty of nature concealed within dirty surroundings. My summer was really humid, as all people experienced. But regardless of that fact, it was enchanting. It was fascinating. It was serene. It was the best. If there's a word that can surpass "best", maybe I'd write it here.

Unfortunately, there's none. So let's stick to "best". Lastly, if I had different eyes, do you want to know what I'd stare at? Sunsets. I'll still be attached to those golden rays tickling my skin, giving me a mild breeze.
