I started taking pictures earlier in the day when I discovered that a cat was on the roof of the building next to mine. Nope, not a raccoon this time, this time, it was a cat. Those pictures will come later. For now, I just wanted to show two of the best cloud shots I took that day... and one other.
 


Barn Swallows in the May 3rd sky


The barn swallows are back. Actually, they have been back for a week or two. I had heard them chirping outside my door for several days now. I did not know that the swallows had been captured in this picture when I took it though. I found them here later when I was going through the day's images. I had the camera pointed west for this picture. It is the only one of this set taken from the west side of my apartment building. I believe that I was down in the parking lot when I took this picture.

 

Evening Sky on May 3rd 2007


This is the evening sky on May 3rd (yesterday as I post this). I took this on commercial breaks while Smallville was on. I am aiming the camera to the North in this picture.

This is another commercial break picture as dusk is fast approaching. I am aiming the camera north again but a little more east than in the last shot.

 

I have several other good shots but I thought these last two were the best of the bunch. If ya all beg, I will show more of this May 3rd set when I find some time.

No kidding!

 

Why do you think most of my pictures are of flowers and clouds these days?! 

 

I have been extra careful to make sure that there are NO KIDS in any of my shots!

Thanks Ariane,

 

As for the nature themes, it's called creative picture taking and editing. 

 

There are buildings all around me, but I try to get only trees and sky in most of my shots. If a shot ends up with a building in it, I sometimes will trim the picture until it is just a nature shot, like I did with the Barn Swallows picture. I edited out part of a church from that shot.

 

Oh, and one of the trees in the second pictures in not a tree, there is a cell phone tower in there somewhere.
