I like this one of his too, but then, I like most of 'em. Even the ones I'm not so struck by are an important part of the continuum.

This is a "tornado warned supercell outside of Big Springs, Texas," chased by landscape photographer Kelly DeLay in his Clouds 365 Project: "Photographic experiment shooting clouds everyday, 1792 days and counting." Each & every of his daily photographs is worth a look. They add up to: What? What's important here? The beauty of the clouds? His eye for them? His consistency? Having a body of work? Any given photo? The doing of it, whether or not anything comes of it? Thinking of oneself as an artist? Not thinking of oneself as an artist but as a craftsman, an observer, a wonderer, a person who has stepped outside of daily obviousness?

Hobbies are stupid. You either do something or you don't. If you do, you go all out, & if you don't, you don't do it at all.

Nonetheless, I do have a hobby, which is cloud spotting. It's a hobby because I belong to the Cloud Appreciation Society. Doesn't mean I know much—I don't know the names of almost any clouds, except lenticular, which looks like a mushroom cloud. Just like to go outside & look up.
