The Cloud Series by Alexis Mire is a striking series that makes it seem as though you really can grab hold of a cloud, since they're usually so high and out of reach. The surreal images were made by creating cotton balls that resemble clouds, and positioning them in mundane situations like breathing, making tea or slipping off into a dreamworld.

The dreamy subject matter seems to be suggestive of literally being on "cloud nine," especially with the photos of lovers who are embracing on a cloud-like floor, or having your head in the clouds. Despite the cotton clouds being totally manufactured, it's easy to be coaxed into thinking that these playful scenarios are totally believable.
