The House of Clouds

The House Of Clouds

"I would build a cloudy House

For my thoughts to live in;

When for earth too fancy-loose

And too low for Heaven!"

- Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Pretty, fluffy clouds! How far is it to the water from where you live?

That's a great shot, I love the angle & the b&w.
It seems darker half way up - through a window?

Great black and white, Moi.

Moi, I had to laugh that you recognize the mall in my blog photo today. If you ever come to Little Rock you'll have to go to the Park Plaza Mall just to see if I do it justice.

This photo, so stunning and dramatic and vivid, actually makes me dizzy! I have come three times, on the feed reader, here, and every time I get dizzy. Superb angles!
