Original Dark Roast Watercolor™ painting:
Using Folgers Black Silk Coffee
If you were to ask my mom about the subject matter of my early photography, I am pretty sure she would respond with a single word: Clouds.
In fact i recently came across a whole stack of Instamatic 126 photos, each one being a different cloud formation.
It was never about seeing "things" in the clouds, like a bear, or Mickey Mouse, it was always about the clouds themselves. I was drawn to the incredible contrasts, corpuscular rays, silver and gold linings, rain streaks, thunder heads and even fogs.
Clouds, are probably one of the reasons I like living in Florida, we have, for the most part, clear blue skies or Blue skies with Clouds. Yes we get the occasional storm... Which usually causes me to grab a cup of coffee with my wife and sit on the back porch watching the rain... but, the clouds still draw me.
Majestic beauty, infinite ranges of light, a glimpse of heaven here on earth.
