Sky Watch Friday # 53

Sky Watch Friday is one year old with the new format. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were a lot of people with beautiful Sky photos last week. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post. I got back from the trip late but wanted to join in.

Photos of the Nashville sky after visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame.
The AT&T building is known as the Batman building, can you see why?
This was a cool reflection on this building.
You can see some great sites at this busy Meme.

It's been years since I've been to any city with buildings that large. And that is one impressive and beautiful building. Batman indeed!

I can definetly see why the AT&T building is known as Batman building :-) It's an interesting belend of old and new style architecture ....

I went and took another look at that AT&T photo...

You know what it reminds me of .. as if someone cut a chathedral in half and stuck a skyscraper in the middle :-)

I love how you captured all those reflections. It almost makes the buildings seem transparent.
