Bows and Flows of Angel Hair

Cloud watching must have been one of the earliest forms of human entertainment. Free. Widely available. While the mind wanders, they drift silently overhead, lofty and unreachable, boiling, evanescent, solid-seeming...then vanishing in a wisp of vapor. Clouds present the eye with shapes and forms seen through the lens of imagination and wimsy.

What do you see in these clouds that I photographed from the jet window, two years ago this week?

Cloud creatures can range from the sublime to the ridiculous (and we can already guess a few bloggers have potential for imaginations on steroids). This week, Fragments welcomes your vision and the benefit of your insight into the TRUE and REAL thing depicted in this cloud formation.

That's right. There is one right answer, and I alone know it. I will reveal the TRUTH of this cloud revelation on Friday August 8, and will post the ten most original submissions on Friday's Fragments. You will be shocked and awed by this Enquirer-worthy story!!

UPDATE: Oh you folks are all over the map of imagination on this one, and a couple of you have some tendencies in The Right Direction. But be patient. The Answer awaits on Friday. Promise.

Looks like a bear pointing at something in the distance. Perhaps the other side of the mountain.

An extremely (and uncharacteristically) ferocious English sheepdog? That malevolent eye in the middle . . . I CAN'T be wrong about THAT.

Giant dog with cherub in its mouth (centre & top); mythical-type creature (halfman/half animal) fleeing from dog in foreground.

a small cherubic face with pursed lips (slightly right of center)

I see an odd-looking boy growing out of Godzilla's left jaw and a very tiny clown peeping out of Godzilla's mouth, but i've no idea WHAT the extra eyes go to. Perhaps i sould try again after the jello shooters wear off.

The first thing I saw was also a sheepdog.
