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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

I wanted to say something about this flower for this post but had little idea what it was. With the magic of Google, I looked up “daisy with big center” and […]

Allegorical Window

The Grand Hall Allegorical Window in St. Louis Union Station. It features hand-made, hand cut Tiffany Glass positioned above the Station’s main entryway. These three women represent the main US train stations during the 1890’s, New York, St. Louis and San Francisco.

River Chateau

This is a view of the St. Louis skyline from the deck of the Chain of Rocks Bridge. In addition to the buildings, you can see the St. Louis Arch. The little French Chateau building in the foreground is actually the water intake for the St. Louis water supply and is actually quite large and […]

Chain of Rocks Bridge

This bridge has the distinction of being one of the Route 66 bridges crossing the Mississippi into St. Louis. Built in 1927 it was replaced in 1967 and turned into a walking/ bike trail. From the bridge you get a pretty spectacular view of the river and of downtown St. Louis.

Benches

Walking around the Missouri Botanical Garden I found this scene. This is a great place to explore its 80 acres and be sure to take a camera since every inch is a horticultural masterpiece!
