Skywatch Friday: Skyline Central's spherical art


I really like this piece of floating spherical art at the Skyline Central Apartments on Goulden Street. With 248 apartments over 17 floors and a pool on the 18th it seems a modern and exciting place to live. Taking today part in the Skywatch Friday global posts.

The sphere's not actually a Crimbo decoration but a permanent fixture, I'm glad to say. But here's reminder of my Christmas-related guest posts this month:  

For Smitten By Britain - A Tour Of London’s Christmas Lights; 
For 4 Manchester Women - Mulling over some midwinter magic in Europe’s north-west; and a guide to a homebaked, homemade Christmas (with the baking all thanks to Susie, Holly & Tim).

However, with the torrential rain most of this week and more festive floods forecast, plus a million Brits going down with illness,  I'm now simply dreaming of a dry (and novovirus-free) Christmas....

  1. That is so pretty! What a fun thing to see our your window (and what a pretty sky the day you took these!) I wonder what the birds think? :-)

    Just getting over some creeping crud that's going around myself, here's hoping you get the virus-free holidays you're wishing for (and an end to the constant rain!)

  2. P.S. I realize you don't see this out your own window, I was thinking of residents whose windows face this sphere. :-)

  9. I love that and these are great captures! Hope you have an event-free (in the best way:) Christmas! (Found last minute tickets to London, too bad it won't be near Manchester, but looking forward to some holiday time in olde London Towne!)
