A collection of photographs looking up at the sky, the clouds and the structures in between.
I have been intrigued by the sky for as long as I can remember. The constantly shifting light, color, and content are a permanent source of inspiration. In urban areas, my view of this plane is often interrupted by power and data lines, the profiles of buildings, fences, trees and other natural and artificial structures.
I see eyes in the clouds.
The winter and spring of 2019 has been one of the cloudiest I can remember since moving to California in 2009. I like clouds but I’m not a fan of prolonged overcast skies.

New blossoms on the branches of a tree silhouetted against a cloudy sky.
The silhouette of roof lines and powerlines in front of a cloudy, pre-storm, sky.
The complementary relationship between the cables and frames of the windows caught my eye.
Clouds, sun rays and the top of a fence crowned with loops of razor wire.
I was struck by the saturated green of the leaves on these trees against the grey sky.
Vertical data cables and power lines in front of a mass of cirrostratus clouds.
