White sheep, white sheep

On a blue hill,
When the wind stops
You all stand still.

When the wind blows
You walk away slow.

White sheep, white sheep
Where did you go?

-Christina Rossetti

These were taken last Saturday from Williams Wharf. 

(Except for that last one, which is from a cloudless day in October.)

CBW isn't exactly convinced the clouds in the first two shots look like sheep.  

But this was the first poem she could locate after a quick Google search of cloud poems.

So that pretty much made up her mind, even if she thought those clouds looked more like cars or fish, especially in that second shot.

The cloud in the first photo is a zoomed-in version of the second shot.

What do they look like to you?

The high cloud, to the right, in the second picture looks like a helicopter. And the helicopter is chasing some cars. That's my story and I am sticking with it.

Wonderful day out there today, I just can't wait till it warms up. I am going to go to the boardwalk and take a walk today. Don't have to work till the weekend.

Man! I wish this gas thing would clear up, I hate having to spend so much for it...

Pic #1 looks like a elephant walrus coming up out of the water.

Pic #2 looks like three turtles on a log (with the Jetsons flying overhead in the upper right corner).

Pic #3 looks like the creative part of my brain was spent on the first two shots.

Let's all just say sheep and move on. When are you coming up here???? We've got lots o' clouds!

To me the clouds look like amazing hats to be worn on Sunday mornings to Church.

I've got to go with cars and fish, like you, except for the last shot: I just know there are invisible sheep in that blue sky, hiding from us.
