Do you like sunsets? I like sunsets. They signal an end to the day almost like a rite of passage, where things start over again. They’re also beautiful and make for ideal photo opportunities. For instance, this one of me and Oliver in Fort Myers on Father’s Day. See what I mean?

I often travel with a camera and look for those great photo opportunities. Over the years, I’ve witnessed some great moments as the day winds down – such as this view from my hammock on Tioman Island, shot with my Leica D-LUX 3.

This is one of my favorites. Shot at the end of the day as production came to close on a video set. Completely spontaneous as a couple runs back.

I stole this quote from BrainyQuote, attributed to Catherine Opie. Not sure if she said it or not, but it’s:

The biggest cliche in photography is sunrise and sunset.

That might be true. But oh well.

The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas is one of my favorite hotels in Sin City. I stepped out on a balcony to grab this one.

I also dig this shot taken recently in NYC. Riding by boat provided a completely different perspective.

From the east coast over to the left coast. This one was taken in California last summer. Love all the lines and orange color and a last glimpse of the sun.

This man sat on the beach meditating. Goa was filled with people passionate about yoga and meditation. I think this shot captured that nicely.

I never expected a sunset this dramatic in Toronto, but it over delivered. Fo’ real.

And finally, I’ll share this simple of shot of the Sydney Harbor. Beautiful Sydney.

    A parer mio si tratta di veleno per topi… Tempo fa in tv fecero vedere un servizio in cui un esperto di derattizzazione creava veleni dai colori e gusti più vari per attirare il maggior numero di topi e quella specie di schiumone nella foto mi ricorda proprio quelle immagini.

    Clooney is homeless compared to this guy and say, the Koch brothers. All these people can spend unlimited amounts to get there guys in. It is legalized bribery. Saying ‘the liburals do it worst’ is just idiotic. Check how much and where the money is coming from first.
