The butterfly has nothing to worry about, it’s just exploring the parking lot.

With all the metal and glass structures around town it’s not hard to catch the odd cloud.

The nature of glass often helps this kind of image.

Sometimes the subject is the shadow or how the shadow affects the photograph.
