Here’s a black and white photo of some low clouds passing through a couple of days ago:

This scene was interesting to me partly because its “interesting” aspect was so ambiguous. None of the elements were particularly compelling, yet the whole scene worked, and  I wasn’t clear on how  it worked. It took me a while to conceptualize it as you see it, and in that time the skies changed enough so that I nearly missed the shot.

I gotta learn to think faster.

A bit feeble, I know, but it’s what I have tonight.

Peace, Out.
