Cloud Catching


This photo was taken on March 7, 2020 at 10:17 AM.

The location was in Largo, MD at a random location I grabbed when I spotted the juxtaposing.

The "Take It!” came as I had visited the last stop on my route and happened to look up and see the beginning of blossoms arriving on a set of trees and as chance would have it - yet another set of clouds having a fairly close match up with some of the branches on the tree.  The last time I remember seeing such a pairing was more than five years ago while meandering in Virginia.

Spring is here and every bit as vibrant as in previous years.  This year we are able to access viewing's of it - via video as everyone is being encouraged to stay inside and avoid social contact as the virus is getting into its strongest stage.

I sincerely hope each of you are taking all the precautions you possibly can to stay safe.

Taylor joins me in wishing everyone our very best,

Bruce & Taylor

    That deep blue sky really makes this picture pop.

    We had fun with this one. Our lunch group is now having virtual lunch together and this is the first one we've done virtually. It's not the same as getting together in person, but it is better than nothing.

    I can't tell you how refreshing it is coming here and seeing beauty and positivity. Everything is so dreary lately.

    Ooohhhh I am a big fan of cloud watching. I still do it to this day, heck I probably do it more often than my grandchildren.

    Thank you to everyone for your great notes. We are ever so glad our photo/story program is providing some enjoyable entertainment in these trying times. It is also gratifying to know most of you have signed up already, for the newsletter and are enjoying the ease that it offers.

    To Gabe: Your close eye to detail is always appreciated. We have been trying to have a separate story entry for each of the banners - but have missed a few - so thank you for your observation - we will do our best to keep the practice going.

    To Jim: Sorry - I do not know the exact type of tree that was pictured - It is a temptation to call them all Cherry Trees - but that just isn't so. I am just glad it was there and showing its stuff when I happened to pass by.

    To GpaJake: So glad to hear from a fellow fan of Clouds. Hope you sometimes spend time observing and commenting on some of the fleeting shapes they offer while you are with your Grandchildren - it is one of the most wonderful exchanges one can have with a child.

    To those in the groups that are now still gathering at homes with Skype or whatever the platform - thank you for taking the time to keep up with the discussions these photo/stories bring to you. We are gratified to be a part of your week.

    Our best wishes go out to each and every one of you,

    Bruce and Taylor
