I was in the car glancing from time to time at the sunset yesterday on my way back to Manila. It was so beautiful. The silhouette of Manila City buildings with the backdrop of the full setting sun (why is the sun and the moon noticeably bigger these days? Summer!!!).
I spent my weekend in Rizal and as expected, my view of the sunset from the second floor of our house is now blocked by the filing of new houses on that new village. The days are gone of shooting the sunset from our roof top.
Not only is the sunset view diminishing from our backyard, my sister told me that dragonflies can’t be seen in our place anymore because just like human, she pointed it out to me crystal clearly, “Dragonflies need fresh water…”. I remember my childhood, there were eagles, bats and dragonflies flying over that vast field and sky during sunsets. Today, the numbers of airplanes passing above us are more frequent than the passing of birds.
Sharing some sunset photographs I took few days ago from Batangas, a province few hours from us. Now, we have to go out of town to see the unobstructive view of the sunset.
