Burning Tree

No, this tree is not on fire! Even though it looks like it is about to explode, this is part of the laser light show projection. Watching this you will see the “fire” engulf the tree and then other patterns will appear and suddenly vanish. In the end, it is just the tree standing there […]

Exploring the Universe

A projected laser image from the Flora Borealis event at the Missouri Botanical Garden. This was part of a ten minute light and sound show projected onto Henry Shaw’s home. The video below shows more of the displays. Many of these have been depicted here. Click on the photo for a larger image and more […]

Flora Borealis

This is part of an interesting event at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis called Flora Borealis. The “Garden” installed laser light shows along their winding paths and added speakers for a sound experience along the paths. This is a flower projected onto the side of an old home on the grounds. It is […]

Cold Night on Beale

Beale Street in Memphis. Home of BB King’s Blues Club, Tater Red’s Lucky Mojos, Pork with an attitude and much more! This was a cold night in February so not very crowded. This was a single shot photo taken at a high ISO. Great street to photograph with all of the neon signs.

Watching Dogs

It looks like this could be a scene in the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. However, this is a better known hotel in Memphis. This is the lobby of the famous Peabody Hotel. On the right is Elvis’ tailor and on the left is where the famous ducks swim in the fountain. This hallway is […]

Ha Ha Tonka Castle

These ruins are part of Ha Ha Tonka State Park near Camdenton, Missouri. Not really a castle but more of a mansion, this structure was built in 1904 by a wealthy St. Louisan. The owner did not live to see it completed. Over time it fell in disrepair and was eventually sold by his family. […]

Little Hills Cottage

This little B&B is trucked away on busy Main Street in St. Charles, MO. This area is a restored part of 19th Century Missouri and has a lot of historic buildings and shops. From here you can visit excellent restaurants, wineries, shops an more. Two blocks away you can view Missouri River.

Courthouse

This photo gives downtown more of a rural look thanks to new landscaping of the Gateway  Arch Grounds. Part of a highway along the riverfront was covered over giving an uninterrupted view of the park from the Mississippi River to first line of buildings.

Loop Trolley 002

University City’s Loop Trolley. This is an antique streetcar recently installed in the the University City “Loop” area and terminates in Forest Park by the Missouri History Museum (in the background). This project was very expensive for the St. Louis area and it remains to be seen if it will payoff. The photo was processed […]
