Silly Saturday Night Post: Talking Cloud

This cloud seems to be talking to me

The face is disappearingTalking Cloud.  He was too late for Speechless Sunday or Wordless Wednesday.  He chose Silly Saturday Night Post to make his debut, and you're not likely to see him again. 

We spent only a short time together.  He didn't say much, and neither did I.  Not a minute or so later, all that was left of him was a puffy white afternoon cloud hanging over my Tucson Mountains. 

I was fortunate to get the interview, I guess. 

I waited to see if he would transform into something else, but he never did.

Talking Cloud is pleased to meet you!

When I was a kid I'd lay on the grass with my little brother and we would watch the clouds moving and forming and try to imagine what they looked like...I'd say there's a big conversation going on with yours :) :)

Are you related to the late Dr. Rorschach?

As I enjoy your photos I wounder if we're all being analyzed.

If so it's an improvement over those damn ink spots!

I love redundancy, so once again thanks for sharing.



PS: Doc' I see a puffy face with lipstick marks on the left cheek.

The second image is the same face after being sludged by the kisser's boy friend.

LOL!  I like what Bill said.  I've been through those ink blots and was surprised at the results.  Actually quite accurate.

Not sure about a lipstick smudge, but his/her hair is in their eyes.  Maybe it escaped from Veggie Tales!

Hi Mike:

Hello Mr. Cloud.

By the way, how can you tell if it's a Mister or Miss???

It looks as though Mister Talking Cloud was nothing more than a whisper.  Thanks for sharing.

It's amazing the 'natural' elements that can amuse us.  This cloud looks like he is actively talking to whoever will listen!

Great capture, Mike! We need to ALWAYS keep a loaded camera with us - the one time that it takes a few minutes to get it out we've lost the opportunity - as I did with a neon rainbow in Hawaii.

The talking cloud has Burkie's hair!

Mike - And he really does have quite a delightful personality.  He puts the same kind of smile on your face, as your first lick into a soft-serve ice cream cone.

LOL great post thank you for sharing the talking cloud. I like when you look at some clouds and you can see something in them.

Have a great day,

Mike - beautiful "talking cloud". The color of the sky is so vibrant. I like to look at the clouds and imagine what the shapes  are as well.

Cool shot and good catch, Mike!  Yesterday, I saw an "airplane cloud" slowly lumbering over my house - but didn't get the photo.

Have a great day!

Thanks for taking time to comment.  I'll see you on your blog.


Now there's a picture!  The first lick of a soft serve ice cream cone.  LOL


I think so too!  LOL


You're welcome!


It's good to see you.


Did you show her this photo?


Thanks for stopping by!


It was good talking with you on Friday; thanks for commenting.


He does, doesn't he!




Because he's wearing a top hat!


It does look like something out of Veggie Tales!
