This picture is living proof that we have the potential to create what we want, as long as we feel positively about it, but detach ourselves from expectations at the same time. As a photographer, I have a thing for shooting sunrises and sunsets. In Puerto Rico, given that we were living in San Juan on the northern shores of the island, shooting the sun was not a possibility unless I was willing to drive 2-3 hours east or west. Now I was not ready to wake up that early for sunrise, or drive that late in the dark after the sunset. So I let go of my expectations.
During our last evening in Puerto Rico, we were wading along the Condado beach on the northern shore. As we headed to find dinner, I caught sight of this non-descript bylane that looked like a residential area and had a view of the water. Something told me that I had to check it out. I am glad we did, because there we found a narrow bay of water with a view of the sunset. I could not believe that I got what I wanted without having to drive 2-3 hours for it. So for the next 20 minutes, we waited for the sun to set, and got some amazing shots in the process. I have never felt happier. So let there be no boundaries for what you wish for. Who knows, what you are looking for might right be under your nose.
If you want details, this was a bylane by the Condado beach (when you walk with the beach on your right, this is on your left), at the intersection of Barranquitas and Mayaguez.
