A Cloudy Issue
I’m downtown, minding my own business. Glancing up, I notice the clouds look like they’ve been painted in the sky. I take out my camera and try to capture that impression.
Some guy with stylish shades stops near me. He turns in the same direction that my camera lens is pointed. Then he says to me in a flat tone:
“I was wondering what you were photographing.”
Really. And you are…? Homeland Security? Worried that I’m a terrorist casing the heavens, getting ready to blow up some clouds?
Me, I’m aimed at the sky. But these clowns point their cameras right into someone’s apartment window and no one is bothered?
