Nice one.

We all seem to be going mono mad at the moment - this is not a complaint by the way  ;D

Anthropomorphism... anyone else sees a Nixon here?

The first is hugely impressive, Slobodan. How large do you think you could print it and retain decent quality?

In the second, I see someone. Could be anyone.

Of course it could be anyone, but it is Nixon :)

As for printing, I have no idea, never printed from iPhone before. Then again, Michael Kenna never printed bigger than 8"x8" from a film Hasselblad, so...

I have made quite few iPhone prints...if it is technically good, you can print up to A2 (19"x22"?). The limitations of the lens do show up in terms of sharpness if you get up too close...

You might think about changing the title to: "A hard rain is gonna fall."

One problem might be:
As long as you do not discover the face in the clouds, you see a great picture.
Once you are made aware of the nixonesque face, you see it always,
That ruins the picture forever.

I'd  had it photoshopped away, for the art's sake

You are probably right, rabanito.

Then again, not too many people actually see it. Some couldn't (on Facebook), even after I posted Nixon's eerily similar facial expression. Some see a teddy bear, but only after I mentioned I see a Nixon.

It was already falling, but I see your point :)

That speaks for you as an artist :)

"is coming" would signify future event, no?

Coming my way, it was already falling above Miami, some 20 miles south.

Then your title was just fine...I didn't get the point about "gonna fall."

P.S. Too bad there are not many Nixon worshipers around otherwise you could have made some money selling them prints.

A reference to Bob Dylan's song "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall."

Aha....now it all makes sense...a cultural blind spot on my part.
