曇りのち雨 – kumori nochi ame – clouds to rain is basically the upcoming forecast. I’ve been especially looking for clouds, since it’s so much easier to photograph things then. That seems to be the ideal for my situation. I tend to work outdoors for these things and this morning’s short work with the camera worked well enough.
Tomorrow it’ll rain, so that means mostly indoor work – whatever that will be.
A little tidbit from my readings on indigo:
When clothes, or parts of apparel, were to be dyed, two things were required of the dye to be used: it had to be able to be absorbed by the material in question; and secondly, it had to be absolutely fast. In many a civilization blue from an indigo-producing plant was the only dye that met these requirements. – – Gosta Sandbberg
