Skywatch - catching up :)


Well, it's getting to be winterish, and that's the time of year that I'm blessed to be inundated with beautiful clouds at all times of day. Yay! Here are a few sunrises, sunsets, and random beautiful sky views that I've found over the past few weeks (buckle up, there are quite a few... :)


I decided that the electric lines here kind of added to the composition :)
Here's a rainbow peeking out from behind a raincloud :)
As always, feel free to click on any of those, if you'd like a closer view. Now go visit Skywatch Friday, to see even more sky-oriented photography! Have a lovely, peaceful weekend, all of you - thanks for stopping by!

Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #155

Welcome back to our fun little meme!



Here's one last building that I don't remember having seen before until now, and it was very pretty! All sorts of mesmerizing, almost dizzying wavy lines - it made me feel like I was on the beach:



I decided to zoom in a bit, and see just what was going on there:



Which is when I realized - whoa! Even cooler! Those waves are balconies! I think...



Yes, they are! And just one zoom closer, I found someone standing outside :)



As always, feel free to enlarge any of those, if you'd like a closer view.

A quick search in Google Images revealed that my beach feeling is pretty close to the intent of this structure - it's called "Aqua," and is even more awesome than I knew :) Click on that link if you're interested...

Chicago was the last stop on our summer tour, and Aqua is the end of my overseas windows and doors exhibition. Well, except for this, which always makes me feel all warm and cozy inside:



And these cool shots taken out of our airplane window, of the Swiss Alps:

Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #154

Welcome back all, to your favorite little meme!
We're almost, almost done looking at my photos from this past summer, and then we can get back to Israeli architecture! Meanwhile, here are the highlights from the second half of the boat tour that my family went on in downtown Chicago:







 As a little girl, this one was always my favorite :)

Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #153

Welcome back to your favorite little meme!
Last week's post took us to Seattle. This week we're moving on to Chicago, the final stop on our summer vacation. We had a wonderful time, and although I grew up in Chicago, I had never been on those boat tours that they have on the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. We decided to make up for lost time, and off we went! It was a lot of fun, and we found far, far too many windows and doors to post. Here are some of the highlights...





 Remember these from my last Chicago trip?

But really, when I think of Chicago architecture, I think of things like these:
