A Few Days At The Arch

Arch 2014-07-27 3

I have not published any photos of the Arch in some time. It is an overwhelming object, but just an object. At times I've thought the possibilities were exhausted but I went there Sunday with my little Olympus E M5 to see what there was to see.

These pictures are not new ideas. Back in 2005, when my photography addiction was starting, I made a series about the Arch with a Canon 20D. They were shot on cloudless days with spot exposure set for the streaks of sunlight that ran across the metal, making the background go dark. Same idea here.

There will be two, maybe three days of this. Going to Kansas City tomorrow, taking in a Royals baseball game at beautiful Kauffman Stadium. Then out to Marshall County, Kansas, where Mrs. C grew up and her mother still lives. Pure prairie league.

Great strong shots again. I love them. In due time I shall place a photo from the needle in Dublin with similar effect although in color.

I'm glad you're getting back to the Arch. But sometimes time away is a good thing. Strong photos.

EVery time I think you have done it all, you find yet more ways. This should be a book B. I want to buy one and have it autographed. I"m serious.
