- Some street wisdom in the Bronx.
- E. Tremont. Just four blocks from the Bronx Zoo which sadly :( didn’t have the chance to go to.
- The fluffiest of clouds in the sky waiting for the 2 train.
- A small green space on 125th and Malcolm X. That supper pointy church is Ephesus Church on 123rd.

A photo taken near Brazil captures a rare and beautiful “roll cloud,” a tubular cloud that seems to tumble across the sky.
Roll clouds are a type of arcus cloud, which is a category of low cloud formations. Their more common cousin is the shelf cloud, often seen on the leading edges of thunderstorms. Roll clouds sometimes form along with storms, too, born out of the storm’s downdraft. Sinking cold air causes warm, moist air on the planet’s surface to climb to higher altitudes, where the moisture condenses into cloud form. Winds from the storm “roll” the cloud parallel to the horizon, creating an effect that looks much like a horizontal tornado. Unlike shelf clouds, rolls clouds are completely detached from the bulk of the storm. (Gallery of Curious Clouds)
