Thematic Photographic 296 - Cloudspotting

Something's brewing up there
London, ON
May 2014
It only seems like a lifetime ago that I was lying flat-out on my front lawn, staring up at the sky and trying to see shapes in the passing clouds. It seems like a world away, as well, and considering I have kids of my own who easily do the same thing on our lawn here in London, it may as well be.

As the temperatures finally begin to feel like spring and even sort-of summer-ish, we're starting to see what the meteorologists call "active weather". Which gives the kid in me lots of stuff to watch for in the skies overhead. And lots to think about as I wonder why more of us don't take the time to enjoy the never-ending show from above.

Your turn: Find some clouds. Any clouds. Or something that reminds you of clouds. Shoot it, post it, and comment here. Visit other participants and return through the week to see what everyone's up to and, if you're game, add even more to the mix. Head here for more background on how Thematic Photographic works. And enjoy. Because that's why we do this.

Oh, some might think that clouds get in the way, but I love the feeling they bring to photos. I have two recent examples from the same day of spotting clouds, here, and here.
