Thursday Arch Series

GATEWAY ARCH 2014-11-22 1

This seems like an appropriate Arch picture for St. Louis this week. We are in Kansas City tonight where the air is clearer. On to Marysville, Kansas, in the morning for Thanksgiving dinner with Mrs. C's mother, who will be 96 on Saturday, son Andy and his wife Claire. Prairie pix soon.

My friend Olivier, from Evry, France, posted the image below on my Facebook page today. He loves everything about New York (my home town) and visits frequently. This is the cover of next week's issue of The New Yorker magazine. The Arch and our city are divided, black and white. 

Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends.

la pluie sur la vitre, donne un tres beau cote poetique de notre arche. (le b&w est un tres bon choix)

Nice take on the arch series. Enjoy the holiday and say hello to the 96 year old from me!

I saw a copy of that New Yorker cover yesterday. I immediately thought of you and your series. The cover certainly has a point of view.
Happy Turkey Day!

It would have looked a LOT different if the very recent plot to blow it up had succeeded....

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you have a great time with family!
That magazine cover is very impactful!

The Arch in the rain's quite pretty. That cover says it all.

Love the rainy shot. It's perfect in black and white.

Your rainy day image of the Arch is lovely Bob, The New Yorkers very evocative of current situation.
