Greensward

.
Under The Arch

This was taken standing almost directly under the Arch, looking west into the core of downtown.Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear, as it says on all the cars in this country. Fun with wide angle lenses: 17 mm on a full-frame sensor.


We're representing the STL Convention and Visitors Bureau on Downtown St. Louis 365 today.

I need a real camera. I've been dreaming of wide angles all night.

I have noticed that in rear view mirrors and wondered why. It's obvious. It's the first thing we're taught at driving school. But some forget I guess which is why a truck drove right into me on Tuesday.

The wide angle is very useful, but have you tried a fish eye? Julie got one before our trip to Chile. It cannot be used very often, but on those occasions when it can be used, it produces a unique perspective and dramatic effect.

Nice 'green' post for the start of spring today. Here there's a lot of brown... below the white.
