We spent a few days with my parents when we were on vacation. They still live in the house I grew up in and I still sleep in my old room. It’s been redecorated since but it’s still my room. I had my desk in front of the west facing window. And my dad, working in the next room, had his desk against the west facing window too. I remember hearing the old matrix printer as I fell asleep. Dad always apologized for the noise but I liked it. It was rhythmic and lulled me to sleep.
Back to my window. Growing up, I loved working at my desk. Drawing, studying, thinking. I would look up and see trees and, beyond them, a field. Sometimes, cows were grazing and I could hear them. My favorite moment, my dad’s too, was sunset. As the sun went down, the light would turn an incredible warm golden shade. I would often stop what I was doing and just look at it. I liked it best in Winter but Summer is pretty decent too. Since I’d brought my tripod along to catch the sunrise, I decided to catch that golden light. Keep a little piece of it forever. It isn’t as awesome as watching the whole thing from my window and it isn’t Winter but it’ll do…
I love it.
PS: I took the photo from the living room window because it was easier but I had the same view from my room.
