"Skywatch" (my second)


Another 'Sky Pollution' photo for today. BK must think it has to be this high to be seen from the freeway. And to stay ahead of the competition regarding sign height. I'm so glad for Lady Bird Johnson's efforts, too bad she couldn't have seen this one here in the Eisenhower town.

Found at Abilene, Kansas, while visiting the Eisenhower Presidential Library & Eisenhower Museum (

Pretty sky... I'm doing skywatch this week too but not posting until this afternoon sometime. Thanks for visiting Raven's Nest for WW.

I love the fluffy clouds, but the sign does take away from that beautiful sky. Just saying. Have a great day Jim. :)

You gave me a fright there for a minute...thought I had slept through Thursday.
Great clouds...did you hear that clouds are filled with microorganisms ?
Skywatch Friday sounds like a great deal of fun...I think Nessa does that also.
Thanks for you BIG!!!!Birthday greeting :)

Hi Jim,
You found some nice puffy little clouds. Those signs can really be an eyesore!!

That sky pollution drives me nuts, too, Jim. Hungry people will find their way...

Really nice sky, despite the sign.
From what I hear, Blogstock '08 was a blast!

Welcome back to Sky Watch. Nice clouds and sky. Guess the Abilene Burger King was obeying the Old West dictum "Reach for the Sky, Pardner."

Just remember, cough, cough, it's advertising that keeps us spending. And, cough, cough, we need to spend to keep the economy moving ever upwards.

Well, it really didn't take away from the beauty of the clouds. ;-)

It is sad, Jim, isn't it what we insist on putting into our sky. You have captured a lovely potpurri of clouds.

I lived in Conroe for eleven years. It is hard for me to picture Houston as dry. It seems it was always wet when I was there. Great SWF entry even with the gaudy tall sign. Thanks for stopping by Pappy's. Pappy

One sky watcher a while backshowed this beautiful view from his front window that was a year or so old... he also show itnow and a monster of a building had been built and blockall the view... very sad indeed.. who ever give the go ahead should be fed pies... like the one in the post below ;o)

Please forgive this 'copy & paste part of my comment but I am on my rounds checking all the links but wanted you to know I have seen your post and will try to get back again.

I liked you "play on words"... "Large size" and "Super Size"... This is my first time to join skywatch, it's great! How was the Eisenhower museum? I've been to Clinton in Arkansas and in fact, my picture of the "full moon" on sky watch was taken while on our trip to Arkansas to site see!

Pretty sky...in spite of the sign.

Great shot, Jim! And yes don't they have a nerve sticking their signs way up over the landscape and into the sky so people will see from the highway? I hate that! :(

I like it. The sign can't take anything away from those pretty clouds!

 
At Friday, July 25, 2008 8:05:00 PM, Blogger Jeanne said...

What a beautiful shade of blue and white puffy clouds. Like that you used the sign to point out it's detracting from the view. It's my second SWF too!
