Non-Euclidian Geometry

It's about curved surfaces in three dimension, their edges and their position in space. Plus it looks kind of cool.

Keep It SImple

Can't get much more straightforward than this. Shot from the top of the steps at the Old Court House, which provides an unobstructed view.

What To Do If You're Bored At Work (STL Division)

Take pictures of the Arch from your office window. It's easier to get away with if you are the boss.

Arch Rorschach Test

Do you see anything besides the Arch and a lamp pole in this image? I can think of a few possibilities. Tell us your deepest thoughts, anonymously if they are too sensitive. Then we will adjourn for group therapy.

Curves Of Different Density

A beautiful fall Sunday afternoon, a lovely sky and a polarizing filter. What else could a photographer want? Well,the Arch, Photoshop and a MacBook. That's good, too.

Straight Up

Welcome To Gateway

I have been publishing a St. Louis Daily Photo Blog since March 2007. Since it began, there has been a photo of St. Louis' Gateway Arch almost every Thursday, more that 70 by now. Sometimes I get discouraged, perhaps even burned out, with the subject. What else is there to say about it? However, my friend PJ of Pensacola Daily Photo suggested I start a blog just for Arch pictures. A brilliant idea, and here it is. Please tell me what you think.

There will not be daily posts but over the months to come you will see many images of my city's great monument. Visit again from time to time.

The Arch dominates St. Louis' city center from its pedestal over the Mississippi river. It is the international icon of our city.

Establishing Shot 1

Photography teachers tell you that when you make a series of images on a single topic you should have some establishing shots to set the context. Here it is: the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, standing on a bluff over the Mississippi River, linking the water, land and sky. Many more of these pictures to come.
