Skywatch Friday: giant bird

We're in for several days of rain, which we dearly need.  In looking for a restaurant that we didn't find, we encountered this array of new shops just off Telegraph at 48th.  Lots of vintage stores, which is right up my alley.  So was this giant metal bird that shows off the cloudy skies.  For more sky shots from around the world, visit Skywatch Friday.

  3. My thought too, like Ebie, it looks more like a ladybug.

  4. Way cool, Oakland Daily. I just LOVE artwork like this. Oh, and I'll take a spin through those vintage stores ANY day.

    Thanks for the visit to Greensboro Daily Photo. You are a good friend-- even if it is virtual!

    Fine repetition of the red colour.

  8. Love the vintage shops also. Enjoy the rain, I can't tell you how I'm looking forward to our first rainy days, it's been soooooo long now. Love the 'ladybug' weather vane, original idea for sure!
