The Power of Persistence
"...the universe had a little something else in store for me."
I was really excited to get some colorful shots of Tampa's cityscape during the sunset. However, the universe had a little something else in store for me. As we drove toward the city we noticed it was getting darker and darker and eventually it started raining. We had already driven about half way (30 minutes). Instead of turning around, I decided to keep going and set up shop anyway. I was trying to be optimistic, hoping the storm might pass before the sunset. When I arrived, the skys were dark and grey, but I wanted to see what I could do with it anyway. Though I didn't get to watch the sunset I was hoping for, I was still able to get some pretty ridiculous shots of the storm rolling through the city. It was definitely worth the drive and getting soaked in the rain! My persistence had paid off.
If you're into cityscapes, put Tampa, Florida on your bucket-list! The sun sets directly behind the view of the city from the Tampa General Hospital. There's a little walk way right on the water that's open to the public. It's absolutely perfect.
