Sometimes (as I was watching a very long cloud hang in the sky) what we see is not what we see, but a figment or an interpretation based on who we are, our mores, our culture and sometimes our fears. This photo was an accident, but it makes me very philosophical in the area of defining description. The camera doesn't lie? But PhotoShop can turn the real into lies and has been guilty of such (with human assistance of course) numerous times. People's perception is varied and often faulty, and in knowing this I have to wonder how we live our lives, and to me the answer is "the best we can". Let's not fault one another for erroneous perceptions, let's clarify as needed and move on with a smile.
