Some Summer evenings have a bitter-sweet serenity, blending cool relief with an au revoir to a beautiful day. Overlaying a hyperreal SPE effect has given a painterly touch to the picturesque green frontage of the Geffrye almshouses whilst the deepening shade makes a good subject for Shadow Shot Sunday.
Postscript: the term ‘At the end of the day’ has become a common and most irritating idiom, used instead of finally, ultimately, or in the final analysis. It is quite literally a conclusive moment in time.
