The cat, the eagle, the sunset – just an ordinary Wednesday near Barnes Park

Posted on August 6, 2009


While I was entombed at the day job catching the merest glimpses of golden evening light, Bruce Laidlaw was strolling the beach in his flip-flops, camera in hand. This morning he sent an email. Had I, he inquired, happened to see this fellow soaring above the Bay at sunset?

Well no, I thought grumpily, I had not. But I had to admit it was nice to see the picture. Then I got the second email. The catamaran, Bruce said, was at Barnes Park beach. And by the way here was another sunset picture.

Salt in the wound, Bruce, salt in the wound.
