Thursday Arch Series

.
Arch 2010-09-29

This picture was taken from my office window about 8:15 yesterday morning with a point-and-shoot. A heavy blanket of fog lay over the Mississippi while the rest of the city was clear. And to make the morning even better, while I was driving to work the satellite radio opera channel was playing Tosca, one of my favorites, with Luciano Pavarotti, my favorite tenor of all time. The big man had just finished singing Recondita Armonia as I pulled into the garage. I'd say the day got off to a good start.

Gorgeous pic! Wow!

I totally miss the classical music station 99.1. I love opera too. I should get that on cd. I've thought about satelite radio cause I miss it so much. Freakin Lutherans! And I am one! Not Missouri Synod one tho. Anyway, can you get satellite radio for in your home? I know you can in your cars.

Everytime I see one of your arch photos, I'm astounded as to how many ways you can show it. This is just magical, Bob. A beautiful shot.

VERY cool! Good to know I'm not alone in appreciating these early morning scenes that most people who work downtown miss out on or just plain ignore. ;-)
