Sky study 10


Well, I got the camera back to square one. (Patting myself on the back.) Now it remains to be seen whether I progress in my camera knowledge from there, or just be lazy.




No room for dogs.




Quite the muttonchops on this guy, huh?

Another beautiful piece Jala. Did you notice the colours of this piece tie in to your cat photo? Serendipity!

Cathyann said...

I've seen clouds like this out west. How beautiful a statement! And yes..the cat picture reflects the palette of the clouds!

Jala Pfaff said...

Hi Mona, Kim, Cathyann - Thank you. No, I hadn't noticed the same palette! I guess our unconscious works in mysterious ways... :) Cathyann, this one came from my head, but I've also seen that kind of cloud, in early evening in Colorado...

Beautiful color... nice use of memory.

Jala ... the cloud pieces are really wonderful and it makes me feel like wanting to be in an airplane and flying next to them ... just great

Wispy tufts of color- I love this series even when the number goes to Cloud Study # Googleplex.
Who ever tires of looking at clouds?
Or Cloud?

That kitty mat is just ridiculous.
As are the muttonchops. Wildebeest chops.

Yummy ice cream colors on a hot day cloud.

The cats, ever the poseurs, seem unimpressed by your camera skills; they've always expected purrfection.

Is there heat in that there pad?

Ah ha. D 90. Verrry nice. I have no idea which end of the camera the round comes out. Thank God for the wife, who runs the camera.

Still, our D70 can throw her for a loop. No problems with focus, but the white balance kills the color if she doesn't set it correctly.

I have 20 new works waiting for the camera, now. That's the downside of having a busy family life, and your loved one who must wait for nightfall to either crash and burn, or go out to the studio for photo sessions. Did I mention the children need putting to bed right then?

I admire your focus on these cloud studies, which are new to you.

Beautiful!

Hi Loriann - No memory here (see the next, more recent post), I'm afraid.

Frank - Thank you. But wouldn't wings be nicer than an airplane? ;)

Hi Bonnie - *I* never get tired of looking at Cloud(s). The poor dogs--their beds are constantly usurped.

Hi Sam - That's what being a cat is all about. I'm hoping to come back next life as a very pampered housekitty. The dog bed is not heated, unless you count being heated by forty or fifty pounds of kittyflesh. Sherbet cloud.

Hi Casey - You can send your wife over any time to photograph all my artwork. And I can't wait to see all those new works of yours.

eLIZabeth - Thank you!
