Dusk in motion [SWF]

@ mirandablue
A calming dusk from my roof in late November.  It came slowly after the sun disappeared.  The rich shades of orange, yellow, gray and blue mingled to create a sky alive with color.  

"Never lose an opportunity to see anything that is beautiful.  It is God's handwriting---a wayside sacrament.  Welcome it in every fair face, every fair sky, every fair flower."         
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Woof Luna!
Keeper sent me off to do her comments.

I love the drooly skies! Whoa!
I love yer focca-something sandwich too but you ate everything!

And since I love Qs here are my As:
1) I won't live anywhere without Keeper! Who will brush my furs forBarkingOutLoud!
2) Oh yes, I am the Center of attention. Just can't have enough of it.

And I love Bonifacio Hight Street because they love doggies there. Too bad Keeper hated it when we went there last time because I demanded to be carried all the time! ;-)

Hmmm, ok mission accomplished. Off to my batcave, er doghaus...

I love your rooftop Luna as there is only the railings. Mine has roof that prevents me to have 360 degree view. I only have my 5th Floor Window for the sunset!

Mridula said...

Your roof is a fabulous place!

Emerson was right on... and you've captured a fair sky, Luna!

[Luna, I am going to Quezon tomorrow, to the Tamarind Tree, thanks to your earlier post. I am also trying to find your post about the place you had lunch... with the food gliding down on a cable, but waaah I can't find it! Which one was it? And did you have to make a reservation?]
