I once nursed an old lady (stop me if I have told you this story already), she said to me as I came on duty that morning drenched from the rain. “What’s the weather like out there. Miss Nurse?”
I said “Pouring down.”
She looked at me like I was an idiot and as she put her walker into a practiced stompy three-point-turn she muttered loudly “Well, it would look bloody stupid if the rain was pouring UP wouldn’t it.”
I am sure she would have something to say about me naming this post Skies Overhead. It would look bloody stupid if the skies were underfoot wouldn’t it, she would have said. But then just imagine that. If we routinely walked through the skies as though it were perfectly normal. Maybe we would have special Sky Shoes and Puffy Jackets in seasonal colours.
Yes, I know I wrote skies OVERHEARD in the title (how many of you read SKIES OVERHEAD anyway – how often do we see what we expect to see) it was not a typo – the skies just called to me all day and I did not realise how often the lens went to the heavens. It was not until I took the card out of Camera House late yesterday evening and slid it into the computer, calling up my day in pictures, that I realised how noisy the sky must have been because the clouds had drawn my attention again and again.
Poor Aunty looks like a child’s toy cow set upon a stick.
I stood on the green truck to take a few of these, so while we are up there we may as well look into Molly’s backyard.
Later these two were posing.
It was a perfect day for the farmer and her animals yesterday – a perfect working temperature with a little breeze.
The corn is drying.
All the sky images were out to the East and the North.
It was quite cool in the night. All the pigs who had been sleeping out in their yards these past nights shuffled back into their houses.
I hope you have a lovely day.
