2014: best moment(s) of the day

(Click image to enlarge.)

2014: The Best & Worst This is the time of the year when writers coast. They dream up their totally subjective best and worse lists for the year that's rapidly coming to a close. Why? So they can focus on the important things...the holidays. So with that in mind:

Yes. Sunsets are cliché. And photographing them even clichér. They are so common—every 24 hours plus or minus—why notice? But the reverse is true. You really should notice. Slow down long enough to take a good long notice of how each and every day closes itself out. Its final act before the curtain drops and the nocturne begins. 

"Earth's the right place for love: I don't know where it's likely to go better," wrote Frost.

You can have a stinky rotten, difficult, bomb of a day, and yet sometimes, that very same day chooses to go out with a flourish; a show big and brash, more spectacular than any pyrotechnics display.

Gee willikers! (Archaic term still only used by me and five other people.)

Sometimes, if I am lucky, and the timing is just right, I drive across the South Knoxville bridge to close out my work day and be treated to the best show in and over downtown. I have to pull over. And it's all there, free for the beholding.

Here are a few more from 2014.

And today.
