New Sensastions


Continental drifter.

Clouds.

From both sides, now.

I can’t remember seeing clouds shaped like these. They looked as if they were following each other after being pulled apart in the sky. There wasn’t much wind, at least down below where I was standing. It could have been quite gusty up above. That would have done it.

I don’t photograph many clouds unless something dramatic is going on. This isn’t dramatic. It’s interesting to me. I liked the repeating shapes. I liked the pristine blue of the sky, something that only happens around here after rainfall. When the rain stops and the storm clouds blow out, I try to take advantage of my time outside to make pictures like this.

Funny thing about going outside.

There was another discussion of how to break a photographic block. A writer’s block but with pictures. The discussion got complicated. Photography is fun. Folks should stop making it hard. Finally, I jumped into the question. Here’s what I said. “Get your camera, attach your favorite lens to it and go outside. Walk around. You’ll see pictures. Lots of pictures.”

The discussion ended right there.

Presumably, everybody was outside taking pictures. Or, not.

  1. Hello Mr. Ray,
    As always I have been reading each post with great appreciation for your insights and advise.
    “Get your camera, attach your favorite lens to it and go outside. Walk around. You’ll see pictures. Lots of pictures” — it couldn’t be said better, in my humble opinion!

    To me, I see some birds in your cloud photos. Birds spreading their wings and being carried by the breeze. This post gave me an uplifting moment when I needed it most. So thank you for that, and thank you always for keeping up with your blog.

    All best to you and your family,
    Takami
