Skywatch Friday – Downtown Skies

Tulsa Skywatch

This is a view of downtown Tulsa. My favorite part of it is the reflection of my Nikon Coolpix AW110 against the building to the right. Used to be I’d worry about it and now, I’m like hey that is the way it is. There is lots of other things wrong with this picture but what is right about it is the tall building against the funky sky and the reflections of the western sun in the windows.

I also love it for the tower of the building to the far left, the 320 south Boston Building. Legend has it that the tower was designed to dock dirigible airships back in the 1920’s or so. I love that legend even though there are skeptics who say otherwise.  I say pooh on the skeptics,

What about you, do you have notions that the skeptics don’t like?

    This is a beautiful deep blue cloudy sky, Yogi! I also like the reflections on the window glass. I’ve read that the Empire State Building in NYC was supposed to be a dock for dirigibles, so why not this building?

    I believe that in the Tulsa Historical Society archives there is a photo of an airship docked at the building. It may have been a publicity stunt and the only time such an event took place.
