Nathan Frank Bandstand

It snowed last night so I thought I would go to Forest Park this morning to take a few photos. The Nathan Frank Bandstand in front of the Municipal Opera is always a good subject and this morning it looked great! This is a three shot HDR photo edited in Lightroom and Aurora. Not much […]

Horseman

The family that runs Herbst Farms generously allow the Three Creek Basset hunting group to use their land twice a year. Everyone goes all out for an afternoon of chasing rabbits. The event usually requires 12 to 18 Basset Hounds to track the varmints. Since the hounds are off leash a group of people including […]

Chalet 21

One of Missouri’s great wineries is Chaumette in St. Genevieve. On the grounds they have cabins or “Chalets” where you can spend the night. When we go there we like Chalet 21 where you can sit out on the deck and watch the sunset or sunrise in addition to a stunning view of the area. […]

Veni, Vidi, Vici

When visiting Bellefontaine Cemetery I always have to stop by an pay my respects to Adolphus Busch, the co-founder of Anheuser-Busch Brewery and the manufacturer of one of my favorite beverages. Even better, our families have been friends for several generations so when when visiting a member of the family, a bottle of bud was […]

Winter Sunset

Along with snow, rain and ice, the Midwest winter has treated us to some fantastic sunsets. This is out near Farmington, Missouri where we were out with the Bassets which gives us a good reason to get outside and enjoy the countryside. Click here to see our Basset outings.

Its legs and feet are bright yellow, as is its large, hooked bill. Its piercing eyes are light yellow. Females are larger than males, weigh from 10-14 pounds, […]

Northwoods Sunrise

Take Highway 51 north out of Wausau, Wisconsin and farmland will turn to woods which will soon be surrounded by scenic lakes. Here you will be in the Great Northwoods of Wisconsin. This is a view from the Highway 51 bridge of a sunrise on Lake Minocqua. This bridge, crossing into the town of Minocqua […]

Loop Trolley

An eclectic entrepreneur in my home town of University City (part of St. Louis, MO), thought it would be a great idea to run a trolley up and down our downtown area. 50 million dollars (of taxpayer money) later they have two of these running. The “Loop Trolleys” are now running, taking us back to […]

Missouri Governor’s Mansion

I received a last minute invitation to visit the Missouri Governor at his home in Jefferson City, Missouri for some Christmas Cheer! This is the view of building from new the bluffs where it overlooks the Missouri River. Since it was built in 1871, the Missouri Governor’s Mansion has been the official residence of Missouri’s […]
