142/365 Clouds

"Imaginary Clouds"

After several days of threatening storm clouds, there was not even a hint of a cloud in today's sky.  With the prompt of the day being "clouds", I had two choices; I could either dig a cloud photo out of the archives or I could make some clouds.  As tempting as it was to use a photo of clouds that I took exactly a year ago, with the help of my friend Claude, we created our own clouds.

Where there is a will, there is a way!

141/365 A Perfect Gift

"A Second Chance"

Nothing in life is guaranteed; certainly not second chances.  But every now and then, we are surprised.  The best gift that I have received is a second chance to find love.  

I pray that all of those who lost their homes and loved ones in Oklahoma on Monday will find the strength and courage to believe in second chances   I think my inclination to photograph this as a silhouette may have to do with the deep sadness I feel for those who will never again feel the touch of their child, sister, brother, mother, father, husband, or wife.  

On a somewhat lighter note, I like the way that there is almost a heart shape between our chins and shoulders.  If I had a beard, it would be even closer.
