    Once upon a time there was this great and fantastic group of people who blogged and photographed … with a click, click here, a snap, snap there, all of them had a week to look upon the sky … day and night, by dusk or dawn, sunrise or sunset … and always there where great and fantastic photos to be seen when SKY WATCH was opened …

    I am one of those proud sky watchers and I really enjoy each and every one of the photos you show us. I really think you are a first class sky watcher!

  11. That looks like a lot of fun Sandy. It brings back memories of a family I once knew by the name of Wheel - it was probably more of a tribe as there were a lot of them. It always amused me that the one son was named Ferris :)

  12. Ahhhh. Nothing says "summer" like a ferris wheel.

  13. What a great angle. Gives me a bit of vertigo.

  14. As a kid, I always wondered if I was too heavy for those things... and I'm not even a very big guy.

    Were it not for hint of legs to the left and feet to the right, this would seem an awfully lonely ride.

    I'm very slow this week in getting my pictures up and visiting other people's sites. My contribution to SWF is Watching the Skies over Pakse.
