The Cloud

Bicicletta coperta, scuola elementare Benci, Livorno
I do not usually take pictures of clouds: in my list they rank even below sunsets, which are already near the bottom of it. But our sky is usually clear or uniformly grey: fluffy clouds like this one are really a rarity and deserve an exception.

We are happy to say hello to our friend Rob Siemann of Barcelona Daily Photo, who is in town!

How can you be sure it's a REAL cloud? Looks too much like a cloud to actually BE a cloud. Oh, geez! Now I'm starting to sound like Winnie the Pooh. :-)

So while you walked up and down and wondered if it would rain, Winnie-the-Pooh sang this song:
How sweet to be a Cloud
Floating in the Blue!
Every little cloud
Always sings aloud.
“How sweet to be a Cloud
Floating in the Blue!”
It makes him very proud
To be a little cloud.

Just couldn't resist. :-)

Clouds are not all bad - this one is perfectly positioned!

I just love this!



Great colors and a nice cloud that will soon drift away.

PS.
Thanks to Revrunner who shared the poem too.

HAPPY WEEKEND!

The cloud will go away soon, but these wonderful, colored building still will stand.

If they sky is blue enough a cloud photo could be a god thing. Like it is here.

Maybe it is the start of a new trend over Livorno?

You should have found a man with a bowler hat and told us you were mimicking Magritte.

"I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" all of a sudden takes on a different meaning. ;-)
