Thursday Arch Series

.
Sometimes it's fun to slip yourself into someone else's wedding shoot. You can find brides, grooms and attendants almost any Saturday during nice weather under the Arch. For some reason I was standing by Memorial Drive last weekend, the first street on the city side of the monument, shooting up the slope. This photographer asked me if he could play through and of course I agreed. He was entertaining. The image is a little different.


BONUS ARCH PHOTO below. Well, not the big wicket itself but rather its shadow falling across the grand staircase below it and out over the swollen Mississippi.

CITY DAILY PHOTOBLOGGERS PLEASE NOTE: Kim of Seattle Daily Photo notified some of us that a for-profit aggregator site, Photos World News, is stealing posts from many of us by the carload. They have stolen dozens of mine. Glancing at it just now. I see copyright violations of work by Virginia and Nathalie on the first page. Leave a comment with a cease and desist demand, then click on the Google AdSense logo at the top their page and file a copyright violation notice. I did a Whois on the domain and it's located in Brazil, outside of US and EU jurisdiction. However, if enough of us file complaints Google may kick them off AdSense and thus cut their source of revenue.


There is a new Arch photo today on Gateway.

Three beauties. I love the first one, I only realised there was a white dress after I read your caption. The shadow is brilliant again and the Gateway one... just wow. I just tried that link to Photo World news, nothing happens...

I did a big AHHHHHHHHH on that bottom one! Whooeee that's terrif.

The website has been shut down I think. I think your cease and desist did the trick B. It's nice to have our resident blog lawyer in the fight!

I love your arch series! The top one somehow makes me think of a target practice....:)

I love the presence of the arch in the bottom shot.

These are some of the best photos of the arch I have ever seen. Thanks for representing St. Louis in such an original way
