THERE IS NO USTICE WITHOUT UDGES

Our entire system of ustice is based on honest udges. Without them, fair treatment of criminals and victims would be seriously compromised. I say let’s put the “_” back in ustice and let the udges (those guys in the black robes) do their obs properly, practicing urisprudence.

There are none of those letters in sunrise or sunset, so here’s a sunrise, courtesy of this morning …

And a sunset, courtesy of yesterday evening …

BLOGGER WISDOM OF THE DAY

Question: Many people have asked how you can tell the difference between a sunset and a sunrise in a still photograph.

Answer: You can’t. They look exactly the same. If you don’t know which one you are looking at, it’s impossible to tell the difference.

I believe every post should include some kind of useful knowledge and this has been my gift for you today. Because leaving letters out of posts didn’t do it for me. I tried.


Twenty-Five – There are 26 letters in the English language, and we need every single one of them. Want proof? Choose a letter and write a blog post without using it. (Feeling really brave? Make it a vowel!

    • You can usually guess that if it’s over the Atlantic, it’s a sunrise. Pacific? Sunset. Otherwise, unless you know which direction the photographer was facing, they look the same. I actually asked a couple of experts (one of them a meteorologist) about it because people kept complimenting my sunrises as “beautiful sunsets.” I knew they had to be sunrises because they were taken on Ogunquit Beach in Maine, which faces east … but when I looked at it from the perspective of someone who is not from around here, I had to admit it could be either one.

  8. It never occurred to me to try to tell the difference in the pictures. I just take the photographer’s word for it. who knows, maybe I have been pranked by some all this time now. 😀

    • I always wondered if there actually IS a visible difference. It turns out there isn’t. If someone takes a lot of both sunrises and sunsets, I bet even he/she wouldn’t be able to tell which was which, unless he/she recognized the location and remembers which direction it faced.

  10. The difference between a sunrise and a sunset is that I am still sleeping when the sunrise happens and am awake when there is a sunset. Otherwise beautiful pictures and I am just as much inspired by this super action packed prompt as you are. I did it all before so am not doing it again, at least not as they wish.

    • A couple of people did clever things, I not being one of them. This is more like a game than a prompt, but at least it isn’t offensive.

      I would prefer to be asleep at sunrise, but the sun — until I get a new shade for the window — comes directly into my face and wakes me up. I do NOT want to be awake. I have no choice, until it gets fixed. Which hopefully will be very soon!
