On the side of a hill in the deep forest green, tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground,
blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain sleeps unaware of the clarion call.
On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves washes the grave with silvery tears,
a soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions, generals order their soldiers to kill
and to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten

Lucy in the sky

clicky to embiggen, these are 800xwhatevertheyendedupat. More details in the bigger images.


I've restarted doing what I did in college for photography courses, that is taking cloud pictures. Clouds have always fascinated me. I love a dramatic sky. See, in NE Ohio, we don't get many clear, sunny days. So we make lemonade.

So this is what I picture the early Greeks seeing and imagining those are the towers of the gods they were given a glimpse of through the lens of the rain.



These are from this past Sunday, and taken from my driveway as we arrived home from Confluence. I wish I had the camera in the car to get a photo of the drive home on I-80, and I was in too much of a hurry to get home to pull over. It had been a long (but good) weekend.
