Aren’t sunsets wonderful? I wanted to share these photos from Prineville; many are just from my Aunts garden but there was such a gorgeous light in Prineville every day we were there. I tried to capture the beauty and stillness. The sunset seemed to last for hours and every evening we were drenched in this stunning golden light.

My family has had ties and connections to Oregon for about 5 generations now and on this trip my Aunt took me to visit certain key areas where ancestors of mine were born, married, buried. It’s strange to think that we live an entire life and eventually get distilled into a handful of places and sentences. “Hers is the fourth plot from the left. She liked playing the piano and was a big animal lover.” “His birth entry is on the second page. He had grey eyes and everybody mentioned his big smile.” We’re left to fill in the gaps with our imagination. Maybe when our generation is gone it will be different, and we’ll leave acres of mundane photos and comments strewn across the internet that our great-grandchildren will never read.Golden sunset sunshine sunrise laila yellow gingham sundress dress outside

    These pictures are amazing! My favorite is the first one, where you are as well! The lights and colors are fabulous in each pic, and your aunt’s so lucky! I know what you mean about generations and sentences… I’m a big history fan and recently had my DNA tested to find more about my family. It was fascinating! So I think I can get what you felt looking at your ancestors descriptions… it’s amazing, indeed! Such an amazing trip, hope you are having loads of fun, for sure! I needed some time for serious thinking, and I was absent, but I always come back – I guess you know by now! denisesplanet.com

    Wow the sunset lighting is beautiful! I find when the sun sets where I live it never makes a golden sheen like it does there!

    These photos are completely stunning. The light is so beautiful and your aunt has a beautiful garden! I love your dress too, the gingham is so American πŸ™‚ I think about the access our great grandchildren will have to our lives also. What if they read our blogs? That would be so strange. xx
