Today was a beautiful sabbath day. The thunder came early in the day and threatened to rain for the longest time before the drops fell. The clouds scattered and the sun came out once again. In the late afternoon I noticed some dark clouds heading in from Chiba, so I hopped ob my bicycle to se what there is to see.
Sometimes it is just the act of picking up a camera that will get me out of the house. I wanted to see the clouds. Not only did I want to see them, I wanted to photograph them as well. Clouds are a subject that I would have rejected in my youth but if they were good enough for Alfred Stieglitz, then I might as well be able to enjoy their mystical shapes too.
I even got caught in a little misting as I rode along the rivers edge. In a completely urban setting I am never utterly removed from nature. Looking up is sometimes all that it takes.
There is a little pot of golden pixels out there somewhere, for us all. You just have to have an open heart to find it.
