Thursday Arch Series

.
A little more Arch in its city setting, following from what I started in last week's Arch post. This is looking east on Market Street. The building at right center with the red roof and tower is St. Louis Union Station. The one at left-center covering the north leg of the Arch is the architecturally wacky Civil Courts Building, featured on this blog a number of times. This viewpoint is about a mile / 1.6 km west of the monument.

WHAT'S ON TODAY: a 5+ hour long infusion of a wonder drug for my rheumatoid arthritis. It's a relaxing day. I plop in a plush recliner and watch videos. There's another session in two weeks. After a round of this stuff (it's called Rituxan), it feels like my fairy godmother waived her magic wand over my hands.

TOMORROW: such a waste.


There is a new Arch photo
today on GATEWAY.

I love this photo. This is one of my favorite St. Louis views. In fact, I think that civil courts building is my favorite building in St. Louis but, I must admit with such rich architecture, it is hard to choose just one. When I was working there, I spent a lot of time at the Union Station either for dining or shopping.

I've been there! hehehe I live about 150 miles south of St Louis in Poplar Bluff, Missouri! That's a fantastic downtown shot of the city! I like going to Union Station, but I haven't been there in years!
