I tend to go back and forth on whether I prefer to run before or after work – before work means I can go out after work while after work means I get to sleep in. But when I do run after work, I always make sure it gets me to sunset while looking across the East River. Look at the photo and you’ll know what I mean.

Leaving the office after another October Cardinals postseason run-induced long day, I encountered this disturbingly purple sky. Quite honestly, if I didn’t have photographic evidence of this, I’d have thought I imagined this all while in a sleep-deprived daze.

I was actually over at my brother’s – no jokes, Justin – apartment over in LIC to pick up some stuff and his building was having a Cinco de Mayo party on one of their rooftop decks. Never one to turn down free beer and food, I hung out for a little while and watched as the sun slowly began to set over the west side of Manhattan. I was in the midst of my Project 365 at the time so I was with camera which came in handy because the sunset that night was just too awesome not to capture on “film”. Though why it’s brightest around the top of the Empire State Building, I have no idea.

I was walking from the G train along Metropolitan Avenue to Fette Sau for some pre-party eating and, for some reason, I just felt like taking this photo. It was well since my Project 365 ended (all 365 photos were taken but I got lazy and stopped posting months ago) so it’s not like I was compelled to take a photo that day. Dunno, maybe it was the cool reddish sunset breaking through the overcast skies. Or maybe it’s the sad, solemn (in my mind, anyway) Mets fan waiting to cross the street.
