The Last Sunset



This photo was taken on New Year’s Eve of 2014 at Sand Island Beach Park, where I was taking photos of the last sunset of the year. After the sunset, I looked back and saw how the sky turned pink and thought it would be a beautiful photo to end the year.

Editor’s Note: This photo was taken on a Mamiya RB67 Pro S with Velvia 100 film. This is the first in a series of film photos by Robert Nakama. For the next installment, pick up the next issue of Metro.

There is only one day left, always starting over: it is given to us at dawn and taken away from us at dusk.” — Jean-Paul Sartre
