Skywatch Friday: Skies Like Paper Press on the Palace

IMG 1135

When they're not the blue of your best and brightest dreams, our skies are office paper white--and just as flat. Out for a walk Sunday morning before church, I found myself taking in the details of the Palace Theater's exterior without any trouble at all from the sun.

  20. We lived in CT for a year and I remember those flat skies that we sometimes had. You have been very creative with yours! Thank you for sharing.

    The more I look at your blog, the more I want to explore. I'm off to look at your book lists.

  27. It seems like so often, the winter days; are the grey days. White and grey overcast skies for days on end. I dream of spring and the warmer days, soft rains, and blue skies. I can't wait Sandy.

  28. If we are stuck with plain white skies, one can at least try to see the poetry...
    It is great for details.

  29. Interesting and intricate details of the building, enough to compensate for that paper white skies. Have a great week end now.

  35. Sandy: I have had enough with these colorless skies. It seems the only sure color we get is gray.

    ReplyDelete
  36. That is really amazing! If the skies aren't blue here in Florida, they are grey, but rarely white like that.

    The architectural details against that sky, are wonderful.

  37. Our skies tend to be grey rather than white. Great shot.

  38. I love the details of the theatre against the blank slate of a sky.

  40. We only see detail like that on old train stations, old theaters, and some old cathedrals. We used to have some classic movie theaters in Chicago, but I think that they ae all gone. Wonderful, Sandy!

    ReplyDelete
  42. The bland sky highlights the intricate detail of the building so very beautifully!

  43. Wonderful description of your colorless skies ... I'm not sure I've ever seen a paper white sky but I've seen some dull grey ones from time to time.
    Hugs and blessings,
