Well, my head may not necessarily be IN the clouds but clouds certainly draw my eye on an ongoing basis. For your Friday enjoyment a few recent shots captured either with my cell or regular camera. Have a great weekend!


  1. light vs dark
    makes me think solar vs electric
    skywatching is a great way to slow down, breathe and take in some ‘wonder’ful
