Named for Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom and the arts, the Atheneum features an orientation film, communal history exhibits and an observation deck. Tours of historic New Harmony are available from the […]

New Harmony’s Roofless Church

An architectural monument designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson. The non-denominational church is open to the public and operated under the auspices of the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis. It was commissioned by the late Jane Blaffer Owen, founder of the Robert Lee Blaffer Foundation and a New Harmony resident passionate about preserving nature. Johnson and […]

The Beacons’ Boathouse

Northern Wisconsin and Minocqua, Wisconsin in particular is the land of boathouses. This boathouse, on the main part of Lake Minocqua, used to be part of a private estate and later became part of a resort called The Beacons. This and many of the Minocqua boathouses can be viewed from roads and trails around the […]

Shaw Home Projection

In a unique exhibit at the Missouri Botanical Garden, graphics were projected onto the Henry Shaw home on the grounds. This sight and sound event was quite an experience. Here photography is allowed but no tripods. A group of us were lucky enough to photograph with tripods so I could capture this photo at night.

Road to the future

A path coming out of the Missouri Botanical Garden’s Climatron makes an interesting scene. The Garden was specially lit for an event they called Flora Borialis featuring laser light displays and and speakers throughout the park for special sound effects. This all made for an eerie walk in the park.

Archways at Missouri Botanical Garden’s Flora Borealis

Several times a year the Botanical Garden hosts these extensive displays. Flora Borealis is a dramatic light and sound show that winds around the grounds featuring laser lights and an extensive sound system. I had the opportunity to tour the grounds with other photographers and a special guide that showed us photographic opportunities. If you […]

Puttin on the dog

This is part of the AKC Museum of the Dog in Queeny Park. If you look off to the right, you can see the constellation Canis Major (which contains the Dog Star, Sirius) above the main entrance to the museum. This day I was with a bunch Basset Hound lovers checking out the museum and […]

New Kiener Plaza

The new Kiener Plaza opens this space while giving the nice view of the Old Courthouse and Arch. It was pretty cold this day so there were not many people in the new area. This view gives a nice perspective of the leading lines of the pavement directing the view to the Arch.

Reflecting pool

The St. Louis Arch grounds have been totally redesigned with an expansion of the underground museum and some enhanced vistas. This is one of two reflecting pools which seem to be as they were in the past. The Arch and its grounds are interesting subjects for photographers of all skills.
