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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

DOC

Doc is a¬†B-29 Superfortress¬†and one of 1,644 manufactured in Wichita during World War II. Since 1987 when Tony Mazzolini found Doc on sitting and rotting away in the Mojave Desert, plans have been in the works to restore the historic warbird to flying status to serve as a flying museum. Over the past 15+ years, […]

Hornet

The business end of a F/A-18 Hornet. Designed and built by McDonnell Douglas in St. Louis, Missouri. This aircraft serves both on land and aircraft carrier. If you drive near Lambert Field (Lambert International Airport) you might see the Hornet’s doing test flights. A friend was a manger for the development of F/A-18. When asked […]

F-16

Just feet from the runway, a crowd watches this F-16 as it does a “touch and go” on the runway. St. Louis County has revised its fantastic air show at Spirit of St. Louis Airport with two days of amazing displays. I like this photo since you can get a sense of the power and […]

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.

Subtle tones

I really liked the soft tones of some photos I have seen and I have been looking for ways to accomplish the effect. What I found was that you really have to take these photos during the “Golden Hour.” That is, take your photos about 10 minutes before sunrise/sunset to 10 minutes after. The light […]
