Is This Spring?

Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the sun and winter in the shade — Charles Dickens

April 1 — I sat near Battery Park, NYC to wait for sunset. The sky was of course less blue, but I increased the temperature of this picture to pretend that it is spring.


Waiting for sunset
Waiting for sunset

It was at around 6: 15 PM. Some people were sitting on the bench, waiting for the sun to set. We were sitting on the southern tip of Manhattan island. The Statue of Liberty view is spectacular. And of course, the wind was brutal.

Finally!
Finally! Taking photos of sunset is tricky for me. I want to enjoy the moment. But holding a digital camera in my hand makes it difficult to both capture the moment and live the moment. I wasn’t really looking at sunset. I was seeing it through my camera’s lens.

Next day, I went out to look for spring because I feel like it is still not here yet.

 What I like most about New York is that it has a long winter, lasting from November to April. However, as a result, spring often comes late and passes by very fast, when student like me are struggling with assignments and exams. Yesterday, I came out to find some traces of spring, but I couldn't find much.

Moments of spring are often forgotten by us, kids in college chasing after dreams and ambitions. Yesterday was the second day of Easter break. I came out to find some traces of spring, but I couldn’t find much.
