Night Interchange

.
We had the firm holiday party on Friday in the revolving restaurant atop a 30 story hotel near the Arch and the river. Of course, I insisted on a window seat and kept taking handheld blurry pictures out the window. Most of them are junk but I like this one. It is the tangle of highways on the Missouri side of the main bridge over the Mississippi. The bright spots, particularly in the lower left, are reflections from the restaurant.

Many thanks to all of you who left comments on my 1,000th post yesterday. Sunday was pretty hectic with errands and family stuff so I was not able to respond individually. I'll try to get back to everyone.

I like this photo. Sometimes I wonder what it takes to be able to figure out how the build roads like this so that when you are driving on them you understand quickly which way to go. From the view above it looks like a huge tangle.

HAPPY HAPPY 1,001st post today!!!!!! :) And may I say it's a doozy! Gosh that just gorgeous B. I've found that the more vin, the blurrier those handheld shots get!! Now, it's time to take the lampshade off your head and get back to business.

Looks a bit like a complex sculpture in bronze.

Hi! This reminds me of some artist's famous abstract painting, but my febrile brain isn't working well. Isn't it funny how we photobloggers have professional deformation---checking out a venue's photo op positions, keeping one eye on the person you're talking to, the other roaming for a photo? Excellent shot here!

Wonderful shot... our lives, these days, seem a lot like this... just a blur!

Gorgeous photo.

We have nothing like this in France. I wonder how long it will take you Americans to import the lifestyle that makes those interchanges necessary. Perhaps never? If Copenhagen and other endeavors to stop global warming bring the car civilisation down... who knows?

Yes, I like this a lot. (I think we are going there for brunch on Sunday, so wish me luck.) The sconce add a nice touch.
