Sky Watch: A Child and A Toy


Tuesday there was a break in the snow and cold and the skies off my back deck beckoned to be noticed.
It's hard for others to see what we 'think' we ourselves see in the clouds. On the right side of this one I think I see a child running with their arm bent at the elbow and glancing back to the clouds behind.
If you don't see my vision it's ok. I hope you'll look up wherever you are and find one of your own to enjoy.
In this shot I tried to capture the noisemaker who had come interrupting my quiet solitude. The shot is blurry but if you enlarge it you can see my distractor of peace and quiet. Looks like a toy to me. :)

I see the helicopter! How dare he disturb you and your lovely imaginings about what the clouds look like!

It's true: what we see in the clouds says more about us than the clouds. But those puffy cumulus clouds are a cloud-watcher's dream.

Whatever mood the clouds/sky is at the moment, it uplifts me, makes me smile. That's why I love to skywatch.

Raven said...

Jientje said...

I've done that since I was a little girl, and I still do that a lot, trying to figure out the shapes in the clouds!

Leora said...

Your distracting noise maker reminds me of the television show MASH. I love those blue skies with grey/white clouds. I see beauty all over!

Linda said...

Nice to see that you had a break in the snowy weather. Looking at that sky almost makes one think that it is warm outside. At least we can hope.

Pietro said...

Very beautiful Sky Watch, Carletta.
In effect, the helicopter is noisy in a peaceful landscape like that one! Great images.

Gattina said...

Since I participate in Sky watch, I too look always up in the sky when I look out of the window or am on our patio ! It's amazing what beautiful skies I have here sometimes. I never realized before. I too like to see figures in the clouds !

quilly said...

Whatever you see, they are white and blue and fluffy and beautiful. I never tire of watching clouds.

Isn't if funny how you can be so into taking nature photos and some LOUD plane or helicpoter just ruins the entire moment?

Louise said...

fishing guy said...

Carletta: It is nice to let your imagination run wild in the solitude of the clouds. I see your toy helicopter.

Denise said...

I have to learn to study my clouds more to see my own visions. We all need that kind of quiet contemplation. I thought your photos were lovely again. Happy SkyWatch Friday.

Raven said...

Beautiful sky. Haven't seen one of those in quite a while here. Cool shot of the helicopter too.

Janice Thomson said...
