The Big Guy

Apotheosis of St Louis 2015-08-23 1

This odd little event I've drawn from the last two days was right by the art museum and the grand statue of Louis IX. Haven't shot the big guy in a while. The light wasn't great but that's why we have Photomatix, Photoshop and all those other toys.

You know, it's a wonder the king doesn't have saddle sores by now. Or does he?

He's looking dramatic in black and white!

He tests his cutting-free gloves, of course.

Wow, this is an excellent shot of the "big guy". I love it.

Saddle sores? He probably WAS a pain in the ass to many.

Very bold and impressive in black and white!

I've spent most of my life in St. Louis and have seen the Big Guy maybe half a dozen times.

Great job in photo editing. The shot is as sharp and dramatic as it should be!
