Captured clouds

By saltireblue    
The top of this fire escape ( as featured in my previous offering ) is so high that clouds develop inside the protective glass covering. Some people are deceived and truly believe the clouds are mere reflections of the sky outside and above....oh, non-believers of little faith...

Anyway, Mrs. Salty and I have been on a weekend trip to the west of Norway, the land of the fjords (the real ones, not my local oneWink) so we will soon be boring you with images therefrom. (That's not a real word, is it? I thought of 'derfra' in Norwegian and translated it literally into English).
I have water, mountains, hands, boots, mystery objects, people, a crab sandwich (don't ask) and lots more with which to bore you solid with. You are warned!

Many thanks for the recent positive feedback, it is all very appreciated.

DO bother, if you don't, who will?

Malc

I'l go for V2, too, and also V1.
I had never thought of you as having your head in the clouds, Malc!

I like 'therefrom' it's a good Germanic construction which, alas, our hallowed BBC would disallow. They now insist on 'may' (i.e. they have killed off the conditional tense 'might') and can't tell their 'lay' from their 'lie', while all their anchorpersons are forced to pepper every other sentence with the famously original construction 'Yes, absolutely, I mean . . . ' when in truth (a) the answer is uncertain, (b) they have no comprehension of the Absolute, and (c) they haven't a clue what they mean anyway . . .

(Forgive the rant, but I reckon you'll feel better for it too!!!!!)

Regards

Ah, Bill...the rape of the English language is, unfortunately, well established. As you so rightly point out, even at the home of that previous bastion of English par excellence, the BBC. The next thing you know, some Aussie bloke will be deciding what we read and watch on TV.Sad

A fine pyramidistic capture ( let me join in inventing words. Smile) Great reflection and a well chosen POV.
And yes, i'd love to see the fjords. This area is curiously short of landscape, so I enjoy seeing everybody else's.

Ah I love the rant. I love the new meteo word particurly . is it a curly pati?

(OK stop. this is not my native language, I function like Mal here, I'm a technician, not a linguist and I can work fine for 9 hours in French, speak and write English at home and to the English clients but sometimes I can't find a suitable English word. )

Be reassured, Annette: while I am a linguist I sometimes can't find a suitable English word for days on end!

Like Bill, I like v1 and v2! v1 for the little cloud above the building and v2 for the full frontal effect! Tongue Look forward to your promised images with relish!

Cant fool me here Malc.
It is smoke from these smokers having
a fag after eating their crab sandwiches !!
Good shots.
And nice to see I am not the only one here
with my head in the clouds !!
Mick.
Very Unique images Malc, there's another phrase I keep hearing, across the Atlantic mostly and "dove" is another. I dove for cover.

Love all the triangles and diagonals in V2 has to be my choice.

I've heard of dreamcatchers, the childcatcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang but never a cloud catcher before!
