Thematic Photographic - Grey

Carmi at the blog Written, Inc. posts a weekly photo challenge. This week, the theme is "GREY."

As Carmi puts it, grey is more like the absence of color. "Or," as he says, "an in-between kind of color, as grey is one of those colors that always seems to be wavering between one optical state and another."

"Regarde le ciel" - look at the sky. A phrase spray-painted on the crosswalk of a busy boulevard in Paris.

Today I'm looking at the sky. Here at 8:00 in the morning, there's a cloud cover, but it's still warm, and promising to be hot in the afternoon. With this moisture in the air, it's going to be muggy.

I love that sign and love even more that it was on the ground. You have a great eye for catching these little moments on film (I'm thinking of the cat on the wall photo too). It's one of the things that I like most about your blog. I'm thinking that "regarde le ciel" should be my mantra today.

Nice sky, Aunt Snow.

And you reminded me I need to go through my pics to make an 'official' grey post.

That sign made me laugh out loud...I love that someone with a paintbrush has such a sense of humor.

Which reminds me, we all need to look up more often. As you've shown us here, lots of cool stuff going on way up there!
