Summer clouds

“The clouds looked like silent travelers headed for the edge of the earth.”
— Haruki Murakami (The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle)

Clouds must be one of my favorite things to photograph. I remember when I was a child I would stare at the sky for hours and identify shapes in the clouds. In the evenings I would lay down in the garden (during summer, at my grandparents’) and watch the stars and imagine all kind of beautiful stories. At 37, my head is still in the clouds and during a day like yesterday in Dallas, I barely look down or in front of me.

These are some of the images I made yesterday, a 360 degree view of the Dallas sky, with both my X-T1 and a 56mm lens (85mm) and my x100S. They are processed in Lightroom with one of my favorites film simulations I use for Texas sky, Fuji FP – 100C Negative from VSCO. I don’t mind the clean look of a sky and I usually process them in two versions, one clean and one film simulation, but the film simulation speaks more to my heart; it feels more familiar with that feeling from childhood and my teenage years when the sky was my escape.
