The gray is back today

Wishing you warmth this holiday season.

Even though I posted a sunset yesterday, a sunset seemed like a good way to end this month’s project. But maybe this one with clouds just after sunset is even better.

Gan Xingfu (chasing happiness) 赶兴福

This November I am chasing happiness by photographing and sharing one lovely thing I see each day. I do edit the photos, often with an artistic effect like the one above, because playing with a lovely thing makes me happy.

Note: My son checked with his co-workers and, while they haven’t heard the phrase gan xingfu, they thought it was just fine to use.

Clouds at sunset.

It’s almost too much lovely after such a dismal month at home. Warm weather, sunshine and a beautiful sunset.
