Missouri Fog


When I was working in St. Louis back in the mid 90's, the company I was working for arranged apartments for all the temporary help in a high-rise apartment building that overlooked the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial or as it's better known, the Gateway Arch.  I had a fabulous view out my apartment window of the arch and the Mississippi River and the park that surrounds the arch.  On this particular morning, there was a fog that covered the ground with just the arch peeking up through the clouds.  It was beautiful sight.

This is a scanned photo that has yellowed a little so it's not the best photo but it will have to do.  It's one I don't think I'll ever have an opportunity to re-take.

Tomorrow I'll show you a photo of the building I was living in at the time.

good thing you captured it when you could, we seldom get a chance at retakes!

Fabulous shot of THE arch!

Stunning. You've got so many fantastic shots - maybe you should put them in a book; a coffee table travel book. I'd buy it!

This was one of my favorite photos that you took of the arch. I always looked forward to getting a photo or two like this from you. Do you remember, you actually had to put a stamp on an envelope and put it in the mail?
We went up to the top of the arch in May of 2009 for the first time. I am glad we got the chance to do it but wouldn't want to do it again.

That really is an amazing image Sharon, I bet Bob in St Louis would love to see it :)

That is cool. I'm glad you explained it. I worried about the pollution in St. Louis.

How curious. I was just outside looking at the sky and saw the moon through a bit of cloud and it looked like fog and I was thinking "Oh, if maybe."
