"He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed."
Choosing to take a break at sunset, one of my favorite times of the day, I drove about a mile or so away -and took photos at Tujunga Wash again. This time- 183 of them. I have only begun to sort and look at them closely.
This woman and her four dogs were enjoying the sunset, too. In the larger version of this photo, I found another person a distance away that I didn't know was there. I haven't figured out how to wander too far here, as I don't feel safe alone once the sun gets past a certain point. The woman (a stranger) and I, had a brief conversation (relief on both our parts, perhaps?) which included that issue as she passed me walking towards her car. I trusted her and her dogs, but might have freaked out a bit if it had been a male.
This was the view when I left... definitely past time to leave (about five minutes after the woman and her dogs), but it was so pretty and peaceful..
