Thursday Arch Series

The Arch is not polished like a mirror but its stainless steel skin (come back tomorrow for further discussion) reflects its environment. Blue sky and clouds get re-interpreted. I discovered that you get a wonderful warm glow from the incandescent lights in the entrance to the underground museum beneath its center.

WHAT'S UP, DOC? My rheumatologist says my rheumatoid arthritis looks like it's in remission and he's tapering down some of my meds.
CDPB Monthly Theme Day - Metal. Lessee here, metal. Are there any prominent big chunks of metal in St. Louis that your faithful blogger is obsessed with? Oh, yeah, the statue of Stan Musial, probably.

If the warm glow is the one on the left, what's the other light radiating on the right side?

Pardon me, please. It was the radial pattern that attracted me to click the thumbnail.

Tammy said...

Nice photo! I haven't been to the arch in several years but have always loved photographing it from different angles.

Kate said...

I'd love to see the Arch; guess that means another trip, which is okay to me! The sharp edge or angle appeals to me.

Virginia said...

Love this angle and the blue sky background makes it pop right off the screen. I'll bet you have the piece de resistance up your sleeve for Theme Day.

This looks like the prow of a great ocean liner. I have the urge to smash a bottle of champagne right on that fine edge and christen it with a pompous name. Good thing I'm not in St L, 'cause I'd be arrested right after the ceremony.

What are you taking for your RA? I am on Methotrexate (MTX) but only been on it for about 3 or 4 weeks. I have not had my first blood workup yet so have no idea what is going on.

Is this what you were on?

In any event, I am so glad you are in remission.
