Thursday Arch Series

.
Rummaging around in the archives again. I actually planned to take some new Arch shots last Sunday after the studio open house. However, there is limited free parking around the monument and the place I usually go was flooded. The Mississippi is still pretty high. It was miserably hot, I was too lazy to walk further and went home.

This picture will do nicely, though. It is the apex of the triangular structure (here, the south leg) that points inward. There has obviously been post-processing but it shows the structure of an object that, from a distance, looks like solid metal.

There will be another artist's portrait tomorrow and a few next week. This weekend it's off to Kansas for my wife's family's annual get-together. Delightful people and wonderful things to photograph.

A great many Citroëns make up the arch. I had no idea, very good idea for a close-up.

I like the way you present this photo. It's an interesting viewpoint and one I never would have noticed if not for your photo.
