Museum of Science, You Are Cleared for Takeoff

© Babsje (

Museum of Science, you are now cleared for takeoff.

While kayaking in the Charles River basin in Boston on a rare (for me) urban bird watching paddle, I pulled up close to the Museum of Science. As I drew closer in, I glanced up and noticed that the building appeared ready to take flight.

This week, Cheri and WordPress have challenged us with the topic of windows, but I don’t think anyone expected propeller-powered windows.

File this one under silliness for a winter day.


Thanks to Cheri Lucas Rowlands and WordPress for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Window.


A selection of my heron and flower photos is now available at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.

Five Crows is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.

Remember: Walk softly and carry a long lens.™

  1. How very intriguing.

    • They are, arent they? I tried to find something on the mos website that would explain their function, but came away empty handed. Curiouser and curiouser here!

  2. I love the photo! I love the clear cut angles and simple color scheme. Nice work.
