Skywatch Friday – Electric Lights!

Arkansas River Reflections

Our skies have gone from looking like this every day.

To about as blue as you can get. I’ve taken a couple of bike rides and they have been grueling in the heat.

Flag Day

Even on Flag Day. Not too many people celebrate Flag Day any longer.

While going to the library the other day I checked out this installation nearby.

I love fun stuff like this.

I don’t know who made or who paid for it but I’ll take it.

And a shot from the past,

River Ampitheater after-Edit.jpg

From the past!! This is (was) the the River West Amphitheater on the west bank of the Arkansas River in Tulsa. Back in the day there were all sorts of concerts, local and touring bands and orchestras, rock, country, anything. It is now all gone. I never saw an event there but the performers were on this stage out floating in the water and everybody else was on the bank. I took lots of photos of it on my after work runs.

    I’ll take the blue skies over the clouds unless we’re in a drought. Then I want every possible drop of rain we can get. I like the library installation. It’s colorful and cheerful.

    Lovely blue sky! Enjoy the weather.
    Here in our part of CA, we’re in our first heatwave of the season. 🥵

    That’s a cool art installation. I like it!!

    It’s been hot up here so I can only imagine what it’s like with heat and humidity. I like interesting and unexpected artwork too.

    Used to have very good friends in Miami -and remembered how hot it can be in OK! Like the ultra modern light bulb with cord. What kind of celebration was Flag day like in the past? Of course many put up their flag, but were there special events planned for that day?
    Yeah I dd not feel liking saying goodbye to blogging yet, although my posts are going more to be opnion pieces. Have a relaxed weekend (don’t bike, haha) Jeshie

    Alan – we are enjoying the blue skies as long as we can – never know when smoke will begin to obscure things … love that plugged-in lightbulb sculpture!!!

    Greetings and Salutations! I adore the floating concert thingee. How different and awesome! Music I’ve always liked music. That art project with the light bulb and plug is totally Thinking Outside the Box. So cool. Enjoy your bike rides while you can. Just don’t over do it in those hot, hot days in Oklahoma.

    Isn’t it the way, you get the clear blue skies either when it’s bitter cold or boiling hot? I liked that art installation and Tulsa’s floating stage. I think there’s a floating stage in Orlando, FL, too. I took some pictures of it when I was there (I have family in Orlando so I get to see all the non theme park stuff) it was such a nice idea.
