SkyWatch Friday - Camberwell


After a couple of hours attempting to wrestle an unwilling spreadsheet into submission, I admitted defeat and decided to take a quick walk around the block to clear my head.  On the off chance that I would be ambushed by a coffee I decided to take my wallet with me.  My wallet lives in my bag, so the camera the lives in the bag came along as well.
I thought that the sky was just an unremarkable kind of cloudy grey, but once I started to notice how it was being reflected in the windows of the office building across the road I changed my mind.
I think a combination of the light being reflected and the tinting on the windows took an ordinary sky and made it rather special.
You can find more skies at SkyWatch Friday.
You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.
Enjoy the birds

The third photo is the one which grabbed my attention Stewart, it's an amazing reflection. I love the way the sky looks, mind you I also loved the way the white fluffy clouds looked on this end of the world as well. It's been beautiful here, mostly nice and warm.

Cheers.
