Light as a feather,
yet heavy on impact.
You may have guessed it by now, I am starting a new photo series with this very post. Most likely I will not be updating it on a regular basis, since clouds are quite unpredictable, meaning I am never sure when I will be able to see and capture a good one. However, I have come to realize that I really love to watch clouds. Remember when as kids we used to play ‘guess what shape that cloud is’? At times I actually find myself still doing that. So naturally I also started clicking the shutter of my camera when I saw a particular interesting one. Clouds are great photo objects, especially when you use a little darkroom magic to enhance their look and feel. So, from now on I will be sharing with you cloud photos in irregular intervals.
Right here is one that I took this weekend. Friends were visiting and we took a harbor cruise around New York City. It was very hot and quite sticky and soon we saw clouds rolling in from the west. However, we got lucky since it did not rain the whole time we were there. But the look of the thunder storm clouds was quite dramatic, especially with the many airplanes always hovering over New York City. Quite a sight as this picture shows.
