Riverfront

St. Louis’ riverfront on the Mississippi River. This photo was taken from the historic Eads Bridge,  a combined road and railway bridge over the Mississippi River connecting the cities of St. Louis, Missouri and East St. Louis, Illinois. Also in this photo the Gateway Arch.  

Empty Suit

The sculptor, Erwin Wurm, calls this Big Suit but I like Empty Suit better. Wurm chooses everyday objects as the subject of his work in an attempt to inspire viewers to question both the traditional definition of sculpture and their relationship to the world. Big Suit, plays with our perception of volume, one of the basic elements of […]

The Door of Return

Sculpture in St. Louis’ City Garden. The egg-shaped form at the top of the door resembles a seed that has just split open or a mouth that opens to the sky, like a baby’s first cry.

St. Louis Union Station

Next week we will be celebrating the 4th of July. Early that morning they will clear the streets for St. Louis’ 137th Veiled Prophet Parade. Behind Union Station floats, marching bands and giant balloons are assembling for the massive annual event.

New Kiener Plaza

St. Louis Downtown’s Kiener Plaza. The Plaza just had a complete remake leaving only the statue. This great view includes the plaza, the Old Courthouse and the Arch. A wide lens allows you to get up close to the fountain while including the buildings and arch. Also this photo was taken well after sunset giving […]

This was the 135 year of this parade and was televised in over 60 cities. Miss Moeller was on of about 10 Miss America Pageant members who participated. […]
