Cloudy nights.

I am not going to go as far as to pronounce these “Equivalents” as the great  Alfred Stieglitz did in 1925, equating different cloud shapes with different human emotions (see video below).  But since college I have been shooting them and as we all know, there is something epic and transcendental about them.  For me, they always seem to bring about feelings of my mortality, of the cosmos,  thoughts bigger then myself to say the least.

A cool video featuring Georgia O’Keefe about Stieglitz’s Equivalents.
