“The Golden Afternoon”: There is a time of day cherished by photographers, the golden hour, when the sun slants in a dramatic way and colours are heightened and there is an intensity to the atmosphere. I find this time of day to bring painful anxiety, the golden hour hurts. But to sit in that buzzing distraction, sweetness.
