Slime for Clouds
for Clouds" is the first dream I had in advance of taking the picture.
It was also the first dream I ever had that was just an image -- no
story, no narrative of any kind, just an image that included two green
clouds above a familiar seascape. The dream made no sense until one
day, a few months later; I was shooting a picture of the Coast Guard
Station reflected in a pond that had algae floating on top. The algae
formed two perfect clouds that swam into my lens. I later recognized
them from my dream but I took the picture when the red roof turned to
velvet against my skin and the white shingles felt as soft as Santa’s
beard. This image is included in Patricia Lynn Duffy's wonderful book Blue Cats and Chartreuse Kittens.
