Hodgson Water Mill

Some of my recent photos have been of not so old grist mills. Missouri is dotted with a lot of original mills that have been preseved by local benefactors and are open to the public. The rust red Hodgson Water Mill is nestled into a bluff above a spring that gushes up from far below […]

Alley Mill

Hidden away in Eminence, Missouri is Alley Mill. This mill has a large backup lake behind it spilling through the gate in front. This spring fed mill has crystal clear water spilling through it. When photographing a site like this, it is important to take you time to walk around and review various camera angles. […]

Artist’s Barn

Driving through the back alleys of Hermann, Missouri I found this interesting barn. Hermann is on the Missouri River and is full of wineries, restaurants and bed & Breakfasts.


Missouri neighborhoods and countryside are full of Dogwoods. With our cool and rainy spring they have been prolific giving us this colorful spring. Be sure to get out and enjoy it!

Falls in Dogwood Canyon

Right out of the gate, this is the first thing you see once you enter Dogwood Canyon. This is a park in Lampe, Missouri with a three mile walk that goes through streams, waterfalls and scenic bridges. For photographers this is a place you could spend days.

Peaceful Stream

This peaceful scene is from Dogwood Canyon, a beautiful area in Southwestern Missouri. A walk through this area is complete with streams, waterfalls and scenic structures. It is worth the visit. Be sure to check back next week for some new photos from this crazy place.

However this little side-room has two trees and other decorations making it the place to be on Christmas morning. I was lucky enough to receive a Christmas invitation to visit with the Governor […]


Monday I closed the office, gave the employees paid vacation and headed down to De Soto, Missouri to get my best shot at the eclipse. Here is the result to add to all of the others out there. The total eclipse was something to experience with the slowly darkening sky and suddenly there is this […]

Old Courthouse

My hometown, St. Louis, with our old courthouse and the Gateway Arch behind it. The pathway here is part of the new Kiener Plaza (not sure what was wrong with the old Kiener Plaza). Lots to do and photograph in this area but be sure to get the Arch in the background! This photo was […]

Public Opinion

Spectators gather on the mid floors of the Missouri ┬áState Capitol and look down onto the main floor where people celebrate the election of their favorite candidate. On night of the “Governor’s Ball” the Capitol is alive with people visiting their representative’s office, celebrating and exploring the vast caverns of the building. The photo was […]
