to be fair, these photos have nothing to do with sushi. nevertheless, they reminded me of what a hot night it was, temperature wise when i took them in rawai. and then, via word association, that got me thinking about one of my favorite sushi spots in studio city, california. this place not only had [has?] a delicious sushi roll named "hot night" but they went further and created a "hot night 2" the sequel. even years after i stopped lunching at sushi dan, the sushi, the lunch crowd, the city, all remain memorable. hot night roll- i salute you.
sunsets seem to be inherently romantic, even if overdone and schmaltzy. i'm not one for pushing a sunset photo agenda, but i did enjoy many a real-time sunset while in phuket. these two moments jumped out as particularly romantic- in the literary sense. idyllic and fanciful. that's about all the romance i can handle for today.
