SkyWatch Friday: Blue walking sky and dappled sky back home

The sky was blue with barely a whisper of clouds when I walked around Lake Lynn. The sky was dappled above my crepe myrtle tree in my back yard.

That's My World: Some Duke University Shots (Durham, NC, US)

The statue of Washington Duke, which was commissioned after his death in 1905, by the sculptor Edward Virginius Valentine makes me laugh. There is something about a large bronze statue with the subject seated in an armchair which cracks me up. This statue is located on the East Campus of Duke University in Durham, NC.

One of the better known landmarks on the Duke Campus is Duke Chapel which was built between 1930 and 1932. I took this shot from Duke Gardens which is at least a mile from the chapel but gave me a good vantage point to shoot it.

You can see the steeples of Duke Chapel from a good portion of the campus. I was going to get a tooth pulled by a Duke oral surgeon, when I noticed all four steeples of Duke Chapel which you can see on the left hand part of the shot above. The shot below are of the doors into Baker House where I had the oral surgery.

That's My World Tuesday: My favorite garden seat - NC Botanical Gardens

I've posted other shots of this seat on my blogs, but I always photograph it whenever I'm in Chapel Hill, NC at the NC Botanical Gardens. I love the way the seat fits into the landscape.

That's My World - Stoplight Steeples - NC

When I'm stuck at a stoplight it's common for me to take a quick photograph to break the boredom.

More often than not there is a steeple I can focus on so I have a lot of shots of steeples taken from my car while stuck at a stoplight.

I don't know much about most of the steeples. The first one was taken in downtown Raleigh, NC, the second in North Raleigh and the third in Durham, NC. The last two were taken in downtown Raleigh.

The last steeple is Christ Episcopal Church and has a weather vane on the tall steeple and the cross is on the tip of the roof.

SkyWatch Friday: Some of the many sky shots I took this week

I have been shooting the sky a lot this week. I was shooting clouds when I spotted the moon.

I thought the shot above looked like a cross between a friendly alligator and a dog.

The whispy clouds below remind me of sheer fabric.
