Flashing Blue, Clouds Due
Steady blue, clear view.
Flashing blue, clouds due.
Steady red, rain ahead.
Flashing red, snow instead.
So goes the forecast rhyme for the weather beacon atop the iconic Berkeley Building, aka “Old” John Hancock Building, in Boston.
What about flashing red AND blue?
That can mean only one thing – the Boston Red Sox have won the World Series.
A kayak sojourn in the Charles River basin turned up no great blue herons, but there were many windows to be found that day, including the two John Hancock Buildings. Looking closely, the weather beacon was blue, and some wispy clouds reflections starting to appear at top right in the glass tower windows.
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.
