  Sky Blues

(Oakland, 2007. Image copyright Hamish Reid; click on image above for larger version).

Sometimes the endless blue Californian skies can feel a little creepy or oppressive, and I just turn them grey in my mind, or more prosaically, with Photoshop. Dramatic, no? It's a pity it's not real (whatever that means — it's real enough to me, more real than the seamless skies of the California Dream some of the time. And that factory's real enough — another looming icon in my neighbourhood).

(Yes, only the sky was manipulated; everything else was untouched).
