Both Sides Now

You have to be on the old side to remember the Joni Mitchell song the title refers to, but it fits. Sunday's post had a panoramic view of St. Louis looking west from the top of the Arch. This shot looks southeast from the roof of the wacky City Museum (no place like it on earth). My wife and I, our daughter, son and his girlfriend went there on Sunday. They have a Ferris wheel on top! More pix from here in coming days.

On another subject, the nice people at the web site and phone app Yelp are publicizing their St. Louis local service with Yelp Eats Week from June 21 to 27. You can go to a bunch of area restaurants and get a three course prix-fixe dinner for $25. They have invited me to their special blogger dinner on June 23 to photograph the event and, perhaps, get fed (which is why they're so nice). St. Louisans with an appetite and a budget should check it out.

U "R" Us is back in Chicago this morning. Had dinner with him last night and now all the busy family obligations are finished (for the moment). Back to normal, and commenting.

Camera Camp Countdown: 12 days.

And are these photographs we take part of 'life's illusions'?

This one is great. Didn't know about the City Museum. I will make a note to visit next time I am in Saint Louis.

I loved going up in the arch. The view is tremendous and the elevators ingenius. The video on its construction is one of my favorite non-fiction ones.
