One Word Photo Challenge: A Serendipitous stormy story

Stormy Clouds-1854

Jennifer from Jennifer Nichole Wells has finished with her colours and we are now showcasing our weather photos.  This is definitely more of a challenge.  So here are some of the ideas that Jennifer has given us

If you want to share pictures of actual weather events do that! But you don’t have to. Share a photo of how rain makes you feel or what you do during a snow storm. Share an image of your sunny day supplies or your emergency weather kit. Anything goes- it just has to make sense to you!

This week I have chosen this photo that I made a point of stopping on the expressway for.  I had my son with me and I kept telling him to take photos.  Not a good idea.

To go back to the beginning it was a public holiday but the weather as you can see  was rather bad.  I had promised we would go over to my parents in Napier to see them and to sort out their curtains.  On the way over we could see these impressive cloud formations.  I made my son get out the camera and to take photos.  He didn’t want to.  So I had to stop on the side of the expressway and take some photos myself. Sigh.  He did take a few photos but was’t comfortable.  And the photos showed it too.  It’s not that the camera is awkward and hard to manage.  On the contrary it is really easy.

Sigh.  Teenagers.  I gave up.

While I was writing this post I thought it would be a good post for Marilyn’s challenge at SERENDIPITY.  Just because there was a story to go with this photo.

  1. Great job. Raewyn. Maybe you could hire your son out to a childless couple. So they can see what they’re missing? 🙂


  2. That was the one thing that went right with my granddaughter. She was 10 when i gave her a camera. She went out and took some remarkable pictures. I have upgraded her camera a few times since. I think photography is the one gift I gave her that will last her whole life.


    1. My daughter is the photographer and is doing photography at college. My son is so embarrassed about it all, even though no-one could see him. But I shall teach him something. I hope
