So I had to work this past weekend. All of it. This, of course, is not unusual for someone in the food-service industry. It's the norm, actually. But for some reason this past weekend bothered me more than usual. It was Labor Day weekend, it was beautiful weather, and I felt like having off work. But alas I did not. With this said, I luckily work early morning/afternoon hours which allowed me to have much of the evenings free. So I rode to our waterfront--which is a mere 2 miles from my front door--where there is an outdoor bar with music and one of the best views in the city. In a way I was pretending that I had the holiday weekend off. So I'd sip my beer and snap photos in the ever-changing view in front of me and watch the sun set over the Canadian shoreline. And as the light changed so did the view. I snapped probably 100 photos, but these are a few of my favorites. The sky was crystal clear each evening, and the setting new moon present. In the second to last photo the planet Venus is also visible. And in the bottom photo is a silhouette of a local tall ship, the Spirit of Buffalo. Anyhow, being there on the water really soothed me; it's just what I needed...a sort of visual therapy. Click any photo for a slightly larger view.
