Four sunsets 

Some late winter photos from right outside of my dorm room overlooking the Hudson. This is the view that welcomes me when I return from class to my room… Sunset is a quiet time, seldomly interrupted by the hooting of a passing train. Dawn displays a huge contrast with the chipper birds awakening from their slumber into full song. My favorite time of day — also referred to as ”Kusluk Vakti” in Turkish — the time of birds. That’s when I walk to class, sipping my coffee and eating my banana to the beautiful song of the birds right outside my dorm.
