SkyWatch Friday

Another SkyWatch Friday and I always love it when it roles around. I find myself getting quite excited at the prospect of visiting other sky photos from all over the world. You can find them by clicking on the icon above.

My contributions this week were taken while in Rosslyn, Virginia this past Sunday. This is a very large office building we walked by.

The one below is in Georgetown, Washington DC.

Gregg's brother and his wife visited us this weekend. On Sunday the four of us parked at Rosslyn and caught a metro which took us into Washington DC. Gregg and Gary were going to see a baseball game at Nationals Park, and Barbara had invited me on a guided walking tour which she and her niece were going on. The four of us caught the same train but Barbara and I got off before Gregg and Gary's stop, and we met up with Aisha a little while later.

All three of those sky photos is so unique and interesting. I can't quite decide which I like best. The second looks like some kind of crab creature, or scorpion as Jim said.

Your SWF photos are just grand! 1st one is really impressive - at first I thought it was a mural on the side of the building. You are definitely "painting" with your photos.
