Rain clouds over Saigon

They went on forever

And they — when I

We lived in Arizona

And the skies always had little fluffy clouds

And they were long and clear

And there were lots of stars, at night

And when it rained it would all turn

It — they were beautiful

The most beautiful skies as a matter of fact

The sunsets were purple and red

And yellow and on fire

And the clouds would catch the colors everywhere

That’s — it’s neat

Because I used to look at them all the time

When I was little

You don’t see that

Layering different sounds on top of each other

Layering different sounds on top of each other

Little fluffy clouds

Little fluffy clouds and

Little fluffy clouds and

Little fluffy clouds and

You don’t see that

You might still see them in the desert

The most beautiful skies as a matter of fact

Purple and red

Purple and red and yellow and on fire

The Orb

One of my favourite songs and fitting in the sense that rains bring beautiful clouds, maybe not fluffy, but with texture. I had set aside the day for personal exploration, however, I got a last minute booking for the morning. By the time the morning session ended, lunchtime arrived and afterwards I set out for the road. Heavy, dark rain clouds was over the city. Option one, cancel and go back in again, option two, make the most of it. I always prefer to make the most of it, you never know what you can get.

I went around the city, took the new road to Phu My bridge and captured the skyline. The close up is a nice silhouette and when you pull back you see the heavy clouds, complete contrast and change of mood. From 200mm to 70mm does that.

Onwards I went and by the time I reached the ferris wheel in Phu My Hung, the clouds had caught up with me and the rain came. Time for a coffee and watch the clouds go by.
