Standing beside my basha and looking up the hill I noticed a fine cloud coming over the hill. But by the time I got my camera and was ready to take the picture the clouds were not as good. The house built like mine is where we keep wood. The clouds would have been prettier if I had used a red filter instead of a yellow one. Made on 20 June 45
Shot from my porch - didn't come out very well but I hope you get an idea of what it's like.
Looking down from Capt. Coleman's quarters - Tagap, Burma. The clouds are in the valley beneath us.
Looking down the road from my porch. Barnes shot this with a yellow filter - I enlarged, about five thirty - I think it was almost six thirty though. All of the pictures I send are taken with my camera, unless I mention someone else's. All of these were taken around March18th "45" - Burma. (The clouds cover the snow-capped mountains.)
Clouds over the camp.
