Cloud Appreciation Society

こんにちは。

Yesterday, Pauline, a fellow photographer, commented on one of my cloud photos that it was “one for the Cloud Appreciation Society” and included a link to the following TED talk:

Well, I watched the video and was completely blown away… Gavin Pretor-Pinney’s talk brought me to tears. I’ve mentioned in the past how fascinated I am by clouds (and also how surprised I am of the lack of enthusiasm that others have towards them) so I was so elated to find out that there is a group of like-minded people who are also enchanted by clouds. Without hesitation, I became a member of the Cloud Appreciation Society – #46923!

Anyway, here’s a cloud animation from when we visited Spain in 2017, and I just realized that I’ve kept a cloud photo as my website title image for the past year or so. 😄

Have a wonderful day, and “Look up, marvel at the ephemeral beauty, and always remember to live life with your head in the clouds!” (from the Cloud Appreciation Society Manifesto)

Snapshots from Today

こんばんは。How’s it going? Today’s post is simply a few photos from the day.

This morning started out with a neighborhood cat coming over to say hi to Yuzu.

When I arrived at work, the light looked beautiful shining through the leaves in the tree.

Tonight we had shredded beef and cole-slaw sliders for dinner. I took the standard food photo, but also a “behind the scenes” shot.
