Skywatch Friday – Sneaking in a Run


I love this newly renovated substation on the edge of downtown.

Monday I had a lunch meeting that and so I left a little earlier than my regular time to sneak in a run downtown before going home. It was right about 5 pm and the skies were clear and the light bright so I took my camera. Of course I take my camera no matter the lighting.


A good view of downtown and am empty desolate parking lot. The domed structure off to the right is the First Church of Christian Sciene.


As I got closer to the Arkansas River I ran close to one of my favorite structures. It is a fountain, or it used to be a fountain. I love the mid-century modern design with a bunch of geometry. It is quite a striking structure.

Not a long run by any means but a nice way to end the day.

    I am always amazed at how quickly the parking lots empty after 5:00 p.m. You certainly picked a great time for a fun run. But I think every run for you is a fun run. Keep packing that camera where ever you travel.

    a very unique looking fountain, nice to know I”m not the only one who takes my camera everywhere 🙂

    I guess I would like the geometric thing better if it was still a fountain with water running over it
    Have a great week-end!

    Lovely blue sky and some pretty buildings in downtown. I like the geometry structure and it would be great if the fountain is running. Have a beautiful day!

    Thank you for taking us along on your run. Every day objects can be worthy of our notice, if only we take the time.

    Nice to have so many beautiful places near work to take a run. I have been extremely lazy about taking the camera with me lately.

    Very interesting buildings and so lovely blue skies in the evening, too! Have a sunny Sunday and a great new week ahead!
