For the first time in twenty-three train journeys to Hyderabad, I realised just how much we tend to take beauty for granted. I stepped out to the door of the coach and stayed there for two hours.
These are my attempts to record the progress of the sunset, my favourite time of day. However, I do not think that I could express my endeavour quite as well Borges does:
Music, states of happiness, mythology, faces belabored by time, certain twilights and certain places try to tell us something, or have said something we should not have missed, or are about to say something; this imminence of a revelation which does not occur is, perhaps, the aesthetic phenomenon.
-- Jorge Luis Borges, from the essay "The Wall and the Books"
The last image would have been much more beautiful had my camera been able to maintain both sport and night modes at the same time! Oh well! :-)
