Spring Skies-SkyWatch Friday

Sunshine and blue skies have joined together to welcome spring to Nashville. The weather seems to be warming up a bit, too. As I drive along the freeway, I see the beautiful, spring green color popping up between the craggy rocks that line the side of the road. Most Bradford Pear trees are in full bloom, and the singing birds wake me up in the morning.

I took this photo on West End Blvd., just west of downtown and near the Vanderbilt University campus. The two towers in this complex house a variety of businesses. Interestingly, there are not a lot of all-glass buildings in Nashville, at least compared to other cities in which I've lived.

Do you like the glass towers?

I'm not a huge fan of the glass buildings, but they're good for reflection photos! I love your spring observations with the bradford pears and everything blooming - these are all things that make me think of spring, and things i enjoy about the season as well.

While glass makes good photos, I don't think I'd want to walk beneath one on a windy day. I know I would not want to work or live in one!

I like tall buildings, glass or whatever really. But when I do look like up like your angle I get dizzy.

This is a nice photograph, Chris. I was around early this morning but you were not up and published yet.

I hope you and your family have a happy Easter weekend.
