West & East

by Jay Boggess July. 21, 2016 1772 views

On the night of the full moon I was treated with two of my favorite sights:

The Sunset in the West & the Moonrise in the East!

Look like two different towns Jay. And how did you get an empty street shot. Very cool ūüćł

Jay Boggess Replied to Amy Daniels 3 years, 1 month ago

It's the same town, just different streets downtown. There's never any heavy traffic around my little town and the little bit of "traffic" doesn't last long, so the evening bunch were already where they were going by the time I got these shots...
Thanks for the visit!!! Hope all's well w/U & Urz!

I must go west to see the sunset & east to see the moonrise....(grin)
Bon dimanche!

Driving from south to north in your honda , stop at the crosroad you will have sunset on your left and moonrise on right ... Happy new week to you ... and do not forget being careful when you stay in middle of the strrets to shot photos ! ... :-))

Jay Boggess Replied to Bzh29 3 years, 2 months ago

Oh! I see what you mean, now.......or I could take a picture through my front windshield of the sun setting while, in the same frame, see the Moon rising in my rear-view mirror. That way I can see what's ahead & what's behind simultaneously!

Traffic lights in "full orange" to sunset is well seen ... and so appropriate with the parrallel "end of the day - end of the road" ...
The full moon in second is an excellent idea in association with the light which never switch of the world ...
The two photos go perfectly "one with the other"
In France a old singer said "le soleil a rendez-vous avec la lune" ... ***The song recalls with humor the impossible encounter between the Sun and the Moon, prevented by the necessary succession of day and night in the metaphor of the romantic encounter between men and women - google translation***
And about you ? Who , Where ? ... was your rendez-vous ? ... :-))

3 years, 2 months ago Edited
Jay Boggess Replied to Bzh29 3 years, 2 months ago

My rendez-vous is with the rising & setting Sun & Moon.....I never tire of seeing them in all their phases and experiencing all the influences they have on our planet & its inhabitants....Thanks for your thoughtful comments! I hope my "Googleized" French is not too offensive, when I try to respond to your comments in French....(((grin)))

Don't know why but Don Henley's songs "Sunset Grill...and Boys of Summer" flashed through my mind when viewing this incredible set!
