Summer Storms Make for Great Clouds

The last couple of days, the sky’s been doing some really freaky things – sometimes right before it storms, sometimes right after, and sometimes when it looks like it’s just thinking about it.

Lots of grey in the sky, but some light peeking through here and there. And as I walk to work, in some places, it’s pretty striking how little color there is in the buildings, too. All said, a great time to work on seeing and processing in black and white.
