It gets harder and harder to think of ways to present the same old monument, albeit a very big and cool one. This was shot looking almost straight up from under the south leg. It was mid-morning and the sky was cloudless. Note that this is color, not B&W. That's just how the exposure worked out.
Today marks the opening of the 2011 Major League baseball season, the only sport I follow. The St. Louis Cardinals are at home against the San Diego Padres at Busch Stadium. In general, it's better to name a big sports venue for a brand of beer than a cell phone company or a bank. Your faithful reporter will attend the pre-game rally and the game itself with polished lenses, a bright red jacket and a cry of hey beer man! on his lips. Images tomorrow.
If I didn't shoot digital you might think that today's post on Downtown St. Louis 365 was a Film Noir clip.
