spanish clouds



When I was about 8 years old I took a roll of film of clouds. I remember one of my aunts got really angry and yelled at me for wasting film. To this day I have the urge run out and buy a Self-Help book whenever I´m with her...
Have a great day and don´t forget to look up.

i love soft, fluffy clouds! and there are different kinds, the way eskimos have 50 words for snow. your Aunt sounds like mine: she bugged me about how much water i used to bathe...and i was using a pail!!! :)

[i still watch for shapes in the clouds...keep it up, jane! i see big, fluffy sheep!]

"I've looked at clouds from both sides now." When I was a child, I used to lie on my bed and look through my window at the clouds to see what pictures they formed. I guess we all did that when we were children.

Love it. I suppose this post is dedicated to your aunt in a way, isn't it?

What an artistic little soul! Most kids would take a roll of film of the family dog. Far less inspired if you ask me...

Coucou Couture said...

you're like "Amelie!"

I like taking pictures of the sky too, though I find it rather difficult... How do I get a really good picture with all the colors in it and all of the clouds' fluffiness? Luckily, I can take digital pictures now...

I love to have my head in the clouds! As a child I would lay on the grass and look up and let my imagination go wild. I still take a moment when the clouds are out to look up and daydream. Enjoy! xoxo

Kimmie said...

Beautiful! Your auntie needs to slow down and lie in the grass a while - looking up - not down

I had a similar experience once-
good thing we kept pointing our cameras to the sky (and everything else that is beautiful in our world).

yes, don't forget to look up!

I love watching clouds whether I'm on the ground or flying through or above them.

Hello my friend~
I could swear you have a "shop" where someone bought dog collars from you. Am I dreaming? If not, how do I find them???
Have a lovely Mother's Day~

Clouds are fascinating. Meditative and calming and never boring.

I love clouds too ..... I used to regularly visit the website www.cloudman.com (the 'cloud man' has passed away, but he was so full of enthusiasm for all things cloud-related, and for people who take the time to really see the beauty around them, his positivity was contagious).

I feel so bad about your aunt ... I hope you can now gleefully take 100 pictures of clouds whenever you like!

Beautiful post, and wonderful blog!

janis said...

I love this post. I think most of the bloggers out here would feel you were a very creative child! Brava Jane...

Love this!

Ha, that cracks me up. Last night one of my nephews was mixing paint and it turned into a brown color and his mom and my mom were both freaking out telling him that he shouldn't do that. I was laughing out loud telling them they were stifling his creativity. Which of course was followed by him telling them the same thing. Love the clouds!

Ani said...

it makes me want to go buy a roll of film to do just that. that sounds wonderful!

sunnymama said...

Those are awesome clouds! Keep wasting the film ;)

I love clouds too! We have some great clouds here in Nevada and I take pictures of them often. They are magical and I encourage the kids to look for things in them.

I am going to take more pictures of clouds now, in honor of your aunt!

I knew a girl who was blue. So she painted her world pink. xoxo
