I just wanted to let everyone know that this site has been neglected because my father had a severe stroke. I wasn't able to take photos......so no new blogs. I am planning on uploading some soon though so please check back. I will get this running again soon.

I was downtown crossing the street when I took this photo. I liked the line of street lights along the right side of the road. The picture is darker than I wanted it to be because I was in a buildings shadow but it isn't too bad. Here's a great example of one of our lovely and many dumpsters too! There is a lot of construction going on downtown with many of our old office buildings being turned into luxury lofts.

I was playing around with the camera when I took this shot. I wasn't sure how it would turn out because of the angle but I wanted to capture the blueness of the sky. I've also enjoyed experimenting with different points of view with the Arch. Many photos you see are only of the Arch but I like showing that the Arch is just one part of what STL has to offer. That's one of the reasons why I placed the Arch BEHIND this church. The church in the foreground is the oldest church West of the Mississippi River. There are still some services held there and it really is very beautiful to see.

While at the Arch one mid afternoon I took this photo. I enjoy walking along the tree lined walk ways leading up to the Arch. The Arch sits in the middle of a small park. When this photo was taken there were only a handful of people around so it seemed like I had the park all to myself.

This is a photo of a fountain downtown on Market Street but as you can see somebody has taken all of his water!! I'm not sure what his name is but I thought it was kind of funny since it looks like he is running toward one of the many food venues around there. Maybe he's going to Wendy's behind him? This is a really popular tourist area and is also where most of the downtown workers go to eat since everything is kind of close together. You see a lot of resturants at the bottom of the office buildings in this area.
