Urban Dusk

High Voltage Sky

What I'm Listening To: Dust In The Wind by Linkin Park (Acoustic guitar version)

I am so glad that so many of you are enjoying the MEME from yesterday that I posted. I had to fix it after I realized that I had made a mistake on numbers 33 and 34. I really should start proofreading! I cant stand when I do stuff like that! Anyhow, thanks for all your kind comments about my daughter as well...she has enjoyed reading them! I do hope that if any of you do the questions you will have as much fun as I did while doing it.

On the heels of my post yesterday and thoughts of my daughter, I decided to take her out for a girls night this evening. We had a great time. How can you go wrong with good conversation and delicious food? It was a lot of fun. I think it was time that we both needed with eachother. We are hoping do something like this every other week so we can share and catch up.

As our evening ended we decided to do what most mom's end up doing on a night out at one time or another....we went by the grocery. What was I thinking? :) Anyway, I am glad we stopped because I snapped this image as I got in the car to go home. The beautiful, vibrant pink sky with all the high voltage electrical lines from the tube and the rail services caught my eye. And do you see that tree in the middle of the picure with all the curves? I thought this shot was lovely.

BTW, you should have seen the looks I got taking this....pretty funny.

Wow, those do look a bit hot.. fire in the sky as a background.

Nyssa and I used to have girls lunches out on Saturday morning. Of course we had girl suppers in every night since it was just the two of us. But this was special, we ate at a place we both considered our favorite. I miss that.

It's part of growing up. Soon she will be ready for college. Nyssa loves college... and only 45 minutes away... it might as well be tewlve hours, as often as I see her now.

Your Sadie is just lovely.

Hello!

Cool shot.

Lots of times people think I am strange because of what I am taking pictures of.(I know that's improper English) I just keep on doing it though because they are some of the best shots.
I love your fiery high voltage sky. Your day with Sadie sounds wonderful.

I love that pinkish glow!

When I stopped to take the shot of the redbud on Saturday, I got a few odd looks too....LOL

Hey Anna,
Cool picture! I'm not usually a "wire" person, but coupled with the night sky I like it. I did a post for you and Carmi. You'll have to check it out! Too bad I'm an amateur... still fun, though. I only wish I could copy your English pics!

I've heard mentions of Linkin Park any number of times, Anna, but as far as I know I've never actually heard their music. I'll have to download a song or two and see what I think.

Very nice. I like how the power lines and trees are silhouetted against the setting sun. And I think I know the looks you got;-')

At first glance, I though it was a bridge...

BTW:
I didn't know Linkin Park did a cover of Dust in the Wind. Intriguing!

Classic Anna here :)

I love the image Anna. And not just because it has something to do with trains!

It's always fun to see people trying to figure out your picture or what you see in the picture you are taking.

Andrea said...

Nice picture. I love seeing the beauty of nature in urban settings.

Great catch Anna, you really have a knack for capturing something unusual very well. Lets face it how many people would think to shoot this type of shot and still pull it off to look good!!!

Very nice.
