Subtropical Sky
Lens: DFA 28-105 Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Galveston, TX 
Posted By: Sailor, 07-08-2019, 03:11 PM

Today, as we do about every year, we visited Moody Gardens on Galveston Island. Temperatures are in the mid-to-upper '90s (F), and puffy clouds have that tropical look. Here are three shots I grabbed today, and - as I often do with such pics - I converted them to the kind of B&W that darkens the sky and accentuates the texture of the clouds. This "look" reminds me of B&W movies in the '50s.
