Thursday Arch Series

Arch 2014-03-22 2

Arches for everyone, as long as you like monochrome.

Looking south on Lenore Sullivan Boulevard. The Mississippi is just off to the left and the Laclede's Landing nightlife area to the right. Eads Bridge with its many arches runs across the center. The arch-like supports on the right carry a train trestle. You can just see a black square area where the train track goes into a tunnel in front of the big Arch.

encore un magnifique b&w, vu comme ca l'arche fait penser a un obélisque

Really nice Bob. I have always liked that area. Very photographic!

I know it is the arch but in this case it could also be a part of the bridge having the same grey color as the concrete.

In monochrome, the Arch could definitely easily be seen for something else in this light. It's a striking shot.

It is odd seeing the arch as just a spire.

The arches in the bridge must give you many opportunities for framing your photos.

I've been watching the ARCH for almost 6 years and I never get bored and ALWAYS marvel at your POV.

I have to confess it took me a second to see the arch, it was an obelisk at first! :-) Clever shot, Bob.
