Day in Decline

It's been a while since I show any night photos. On the way home on Thursday, I liked how the sky looked, but couldn't figure out a decent composition. When I got home, I messed around with a flowerpot on my balcony and came up with this. I really like how the highlights on the silhouette and the muted colors in the background hint at the shape of the potted succulent.

Yesterday evening, I got home a bit earlier and noticed the shadow of my apartment on these trees during sunset. I grabbed my camera, worked out a decent composition, and took a few shots, but they seemed to be missing something. Right on cue, a car pulled up and started to park as another drove past. I like the yellow of their headlights.

I also haven't done a comical quote in a while. Here's one from writer and comedian A. Whitney Brown:
"I am not a vegetarian because I love animals; I am a vegetarian because I hate plants."
