236/365 Sunset



Back in 2004, I took my little Canon PowerShot A75 point-and-shoot camera with me on a tour of Crown Hill Cemetery. I hadn’t graduated to a SLR yet. In fact, it wasn’t yet a stirring in my heart. I liked my little camera.

The tour of the cemetery ends up on the highest point in Indianapolis, Crown Hill, where James Whitcomb Riley is buried under a pillared monument open to the sky. (The tour guide insists that it isn’t the highest point in Indianapolis, but try telling that to Hoosiers. They scoff at me.)

I staked out my spot. It’s amazing how fast the sun sets once it gets near the horizon. And I’m amazed I actually got a shot since I didn’t have a tripod with me. I was oblivious to camera shake and how important the tripod can be. Not knowing allowed me to believe that I would get a decent shot, and although this is soft, it works for me.
