SKYWATCH FRIDAY

Having taken a break for a few weeks, I am still not in the groove of things and haven't gotten ready for as many memes as I usually do.  My apologies to their hosts.  Hopefully I will be able to participate in more next week.  

I do have one photo for SkyWatch Friday.  This is also from Reston Zoo.  We passed by a carousel ride and I took a quick shot of its roof with a pretty blue sky beyond.  It was a lovely day to get out and about.




Thank you to the team at SkyWatch Friday.
Please visit and look at all the great sky photos around the world.

That glorious image made me thinking of jousting immediately. A tournament, knights battling for the favours of fair ladies....

Hey you know, everybody takes a breaks. When blogging becomes a chore or if life gets in the way I just go with it.

It looks poetically, the green dome against blue sky. Reminds me of childhood days...
Happy Easter :-)

A pretty top. It's good to look upwards and notice details such as this and it looks even better against the blue sky. Glad you're back blogging. It takes a while to get back into your normal routine doesn't it? I've felt the same since getting back from Italy. Wishing you a very happy Easter.

Hi Denise,
Welcome back!
The top of the carousel almost looks like a 'stupa' or a buddhist structure, to my eyes. Very beautiful!
The green is brilliant against the blueish sky!
Oh - the squirrel banner is awesome!

Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)
