skywatch over cvs


please click on photo to further inspect the puffiness of the clouds


I thought the sky added a touch of beauty to this otherwise typical long island landscape. this giant 24 hour cvs was just built right around the corner from winthrop university hospital in mineola on jericho turnpike. if you'd like to see more skies from all around the world, please go here thanks to klaus and his team, sandy, ivar, fishing guy, wren and louise.
also, please visit me saturday since I am hosting another giveaway compliments of photofiddle. they have generously created a piece of artwork from one of my long island daily photos and they've offered me a $50 gift certificate to give away to one of my readers. I should be receiving the canvas today so I will be writing about it and offering the gift certificate on saturday. I am hoping you will come back to check it out. until then, tgif!

Hi Lily,

Great sky watch shot (right over the CVS). I love that your blog is about Long Island. I live out here too : ) Cloud formation in this shot is great.

A nice sky can enhance even the most ordinary scenes. Love the clouds.
Have a wonderful weekend!

The CVS almost looks like a circus attraction!

Pacey said...

Beautiful indeed and that store is quite big.

Pietro said...

Lily, this is a beautiful landscape and those white clouds in the blue sky make it really picturesque. A great Sky Watch!

Beautiful sky over the city. Amazing what you can see if you remember to look up.

I probably wouldn't have thought of Skywatch over CVS, but it's beautiful everywhere you look, isn't it?

Carol said...

Nice shot ...beautiful sky...somehow, seeing CVS in a photo makes it appear more attractive than seeing CVS on the street...

Sherry said...

James is right. A beautiful sky can turn the ordinary sight into a nice picture.
Thanks for stopping by my site on Wednesday when I had questions about the mystery plant in my yard. Today I’ve posted what I believe is the answer with details: http://blondesherry.blogspot.com/2009/05/mystery-solved-its-not-yucky-its-yucca.html

This is such a beautiful pic - the perfect blue sky behind the sunlit CVS store with matching colorful flags. You've captured something, and u really make CVS seem like so much more.

I don't know what a CVS is, but the sky sure is pretty!

Happy Sky Watch Friday!

Alexa said...

Hilda -- it's a chain drugstore, of which there seem to be hundreds in the NY area!
I really like this, lily, and would love to come back tomorrow, but I'm spending the weekend (Happy Mother's Day, btw) with my own fabulous 89-year-old mom (who for some reason has a resistance to the Internet—go figure, as we say in Bklyn).

I love 24-hour CVS or basically, anything that's open 24-7.

When I lived in Astoria, there was a really nice diner near my apartment that was open all night long. During my summer break, I would sometimes go downstairs to the diner and order a half roast chicken with mash potatoes and gravy at 3 AM in the morning.
