Meditation On A Jo’burg Sunset

The end of one day merely ushers in the beginning of another

Some find hope in the end; some find hope in the beginning

And so one never knows whether it’s the sunrise or the sunset that is more beautiful

And perhaps there is no need to choose

Johannesburg sunset

Today, I tried something new. I seldom enhance my photographs, but I began playing with the colours of this Johannesburg skyline sunset and liked the result. Because after all sunsets are meant to be colourful.
