I was driving into Ithaca this afternoon, and the approach to the city is from up high where you can see Cayuga Lake and the hills in the distance. The sky to the west had these stunning storm clouds, but there was no way, with all the telephone wires and buildings in the way, to get a good photograph of the scenery. After driving down a long hill into the city, I stopped to get gas. Now the sky was covered with even more obstacles. Then it occurred to me that perhaps that was the picture - what the sky looks like from down in the city. So I end up taking advantage of all that I was trying to avoid. It's just a different kind of picture.
