Sky in a Vase & in Flowers 2 (SkyWatchFriday)

Seattle sky (to be exact) from Eastlake Bar and Grill on Lake Union - good food at reasonable prices with a great view. (I did like the flowers against the black table top too.)

Sky thru the glass flower window in Tacoma's Union Station at sunrise. The shape at the base of the window is a clock. Update: the building is a restored space for events now, and the glass art is by the famous artist Dale Chihuly. More at: http://www.chihuly.com/installations/unionstation/index.html

See Tom's Sky Watch Friday for many more sky photos.

Are those orange and red flowers hanging or attached to the window? The window is beautiful. Great shot. Like your posey too.

Ingenious images. I do love sunflare.

Mike said...

Wow, that window shot is gorgeous. Should we feel bad that you're in a train station at sunrise?

RuneE said...

Sky Watch from inside - not a bad idea...

Marcia said...

Not just this window, but all your blog is very interesting and beautiful. I'll return more times. (excuse may poor English).

I wonder if this is a long standing bar? The scalloped disks look like the work of Dale Chihuly. If so, perhaps these were purchased at an earlier date in his career (cheaper) or they're part of a trade. It's magical. I love glass.

Tash, I've got an e-mail address in my profile: drop me a note..

Love the vase shot. Great take on Skywatch Friday.

And that gorgeous flare in the window---love it.

Arija said...

Love your alternate views of the sky.the sky bottled in a vase or glowing through a window. Certainly unusual and fetching.

Louise said...

Just beautiful. Don't know what you'd be doing there at sunrise, but it was worth it for those checking on this SWF photo!

Greyscale Territory said...

What a magical way to capture the sky! Fascinating pics!

PJ said...

Anything with Dale Chihuly and I'm in. Love the capture in the vase. I don't know which I like more, direct sky shots or just a taste. I try to do both.
