Day 187 (5 July 2012) Thistle Sunset

One of the challenges for me with this 365 project is that I have to come up with an idea of something to shoot every day.  It’s a HUGE stretch for me to think creatively that much, and it shows sometimes.  Today was one of those days where I didn’t have a great idea till shortly before shooting.  I was on my way to a friend’s to work out and saw the sign for Harkness Park and made the decision to go there to shoot the sunset.  I’m glad I didn’t have a different idea 🙂

I couldn’t decide which images I like best, so there are a few for your viewing pleasure. I almost didn’t post the last one, cause I like the others so much more, but I added it for variety 🙂
