“I took this shot about two summers ago and it reaffirmed two truths about photography: 1. You always need to carry a camera wherever you go, and 2. Mother Nature is a fickle gal.
“I worked a few blocks away from the InterContinental Boston (pictured) and took a stroll after work. I happened to bring my camera with me that day, which was not altogether too typical for me during the week. When I left my office, the weather was warm and the sky was blue all around.
“About 15 minutes later and out of nowhere, the sky was covered with an armada of clouds. I was right near the ICB and noticed the reflective qualities of the glass facade and how it gave the appearance that the clouds were flowing through the building. I knew I wanted to bracket my shots to create a tone-mapped HDR image but I didn't have my tripod with me (Oh, the humanity!), so I leaned against the wall of the hotel, braced my camera while aiming up, and fired.
“Lessons learned (again).” – Brian
