The photographs on the long side of the Traction Company were taken within 3 minutes of each other. The sun was in the west sky. In the east only the dankest, darkest hues were left. In the west, the sun was behind the clouds on the horizon. Directly above us was the edge of the blue sky with the kind of cloud that scatters light best; tall, puffy and fragrant.
This information is just for reference. Looking at the photos can produce infinate time-of-day interpretations. For all practical purposes, it would be impossible to know the precise time. But what I find interesting is that all the moods, colors and feelings of a skyscape can exist in the moment just before the sun sets, or rises for that matter.
