“Sunshine” – Portrait By Princess Shajir Canda

I have a huge fascination for the sun – specifically sunrise and sunset. I remember when I worked in Manila before; my shift ends at five or six am. Instead of taking a cab, I walked home to see the sun rise. It gives me a happy and hopeful feeling. It’s like a promise of a second chance at things, of a new beginning. Though not more than sunrises, I also love sunsets. It makes me believe that endings can be beautiful and that there will be a time for rest. How about you? Do you enjoy sunrise at sunset? Why?

    I love catching the sunrise, especially at the beach. It’s such a sight to behold I actually prefer this to the (seemingly) more popular sunset because I love how the world turns from black to colorful before your eyes. 🙂

  2. Mei says:

    I love both sunrises and sunsets. For me, they remind me that another day is about to come so no matter how your today went, you’ll still have tomorrow to cherish.

  3. Marie says:

    I love sunsets! I go to beaches in summer just to catch the sunset lol .

  4. Irish says:

    I love both sunrise and sunset too. That’s what I used to do too when I was still working around Makati.

  5. I love the Sunny weather but not really fond of being in the Sun as I am so paranoid of UV Rays.

  6. Mijika says:

    I used to say that I love sunsets more than anything, but now that I think about it again, I do actually like the sunrise more!
    I love how the darkness fades away, and the sun comes out and it just feels like everywhere the sun rays reach, everything’s waking up and coming to life. I love how I feel so contented and refreshed when watching the sun rise <33

  7. Genzel says:

    I also love both but I think I find sunset more dramatic for me. I like watching it. 🙂 Nice photo by the way 🙂

  8. Deb says:

    I do love to catch the sunrise and sunset but I prefer sunrise more than sunset as it indicates the beginning of a new day.

  9. Franc Ramon says:

    I love both the sunset and the sunrise though I would prefer the sunset since I don’t have to wake up early for that.
