I celebrated a milestone back in 2010. I am not going to say how many candles I celebrated but found myself on a beach in St. Petersburg, Florida with a few friends, some I had just met the day before through a mutual friend, when I had planned to have this big ole shindig with all the invitees dressed in sky blue attire and bare feet, decor to mirror a wedding, mermaids falling from the sky, Maroon 5 or Prince playing the sound and everyone just having a great time. Oh well, that was just a dream but what a girl to do then dream?! It is cheap and you don’t have to pay a dime.
As I strolled down the beach, enjoying the weather and what mother nature had to offer, I crossed paths with this elderly lady who resorted to asking me a few liners after she learned she was not being photographed, “have you ever noticed that not all the clouds are the same?” Humm, great question. Never noticed, I replied. “Have you ever seen a website or a magazine dedicated solely to clouds?” Again, my answer was no. Perhaps, there is one but personally, aside from the National Geographic magazine publishing one picture here and there, I am yet to see a periodical totally dedicated to it. So, no.
Funny how things work. I found myself from that point on, kinda consumed, paying attention to every little cloud in the sky, photographing, cataloging them daily which I hope to publish soon. Call it geek or whatever you want, trust me when I say that it is a lot fun, specially when you take a few minutes to gaze and witness them metamorphosing, it is one cool phenomenon… exhale!
P.S. These pictures were taken with my cell phone hence the quality but they look great I might add.
