Skywatch Friday

(Click the pictures for a larger image)

It was a really hot day shortly after the end of summer when my oldest daughter took a break from playing:





















Last wednesday I was in a meeting that was being held at the 23rd floor of the main office of a company I used to work for back in the days their tallest office only reached seven floors into the sky:
















The meeting had come to an end and I witnessed people making clouds:
















Just before the meeting started I tried to find my house but all I could find were the piramid-like buildings (the ones shaped after the christmas-tree in the architect's office) that are located at a mere five minute walk from my place:
















A few days ago I got startled by this flock of birds that previously sat peacefully on the edge of the building across the street from my house. Luckily I had just finished placing a phonecall with my camera. Something (or someone) startled them:
















Note: Every SWF-picture published here is shot with my trusty Nokia N93 mobile phone and is unedited. For more Skywatch Friday photo's from around the globe, please check http://skyley.blogspot.com/

Mooi gevarieerd SWF-logje.
Hoewel ik het niet zo heb staan op dat soort rookpluimen, vind ik vooral je derde foto erg mooi.

Wat heb je een schitterend uitzicht van de 23ste verdieping en je mobiel altijd bij de hand. Levert prachtige plaatjes op!

Wow, you really write a lot!
Even in English.. well, doesn't seem to be a problem to me.
Hope this works.
