Skywatch Friday – The Door was finally Unlocked


Above is a very poor photo of  a building in downtown Tulsa owned by Tulsa Community College. The building is right on Boston Avenue and I’ve always been intrigued by the little projection it has over the street. Periodically I have wandered up there, acting like I belonged but the door from the inside to the deck outside has always been locked.

Looking north on Boston Avenue

A couple weeks ago I was walking by on my noon stroll and I noticed a woman sitting up there. So hey, I went over and ventured up the elevator, found the door and there I was outside. I didn’t have my camera so I took some photos with my cell phone using a hdr app.


That is Boston Avenue Church way down there. It was the subject of my last Skywatch Friday post.


And here is a closeup. 


And here is looking north again. We have some humongus parking lots here in Tulsa.


And going to the west to Holy Family Cathedral. Tulsa is unique in that we have a bunch of big churches downtown and they are thriving. 

Anyway I stayed a while taking in the sights and then left.I guess I was legal. I didn’t see any no trespassing signs or anything. So I am going to be bring my Nikon some day.

    I’d love to see more shots of downtown Tulsa. These just whet my appetite. Some impressive buildings – and, all those trees!

    It’ll be hard to improve over your cell phone!! Of course, it is who is behind the camera that is the difference maker…and you earned great creds…kudos..
