Step out and look up. Urban skies have their own particular kind of light, and I devote a good portion of the day to watching it change. There is so much going on. I study the colors as if they could be absorbed into my memory forever. Occasionally, I even remember to coax them into the camera. Here are five favorites.
First up above is a classic orange spectacular with dramatic silhouette, and I swear to you nothing but the size was altered. Next in line, puffballs deluxe featuring some of the most outlandish colors ever created (by nature not me) – followed by a miraculous sky of blue beyond blue.
Number four below is film, most likely Fujifilm, most likely a scan of a print. The archives may be calling me soon; for now they wait patiently for revival.
And in closing, a tiny greeting from Sol via crystal, all the way to my home.
