June 1 Theme Day Warm-up

The June 1 CDPB theme is the view from your bedroom window. I'm not sure how I will handle this: the view from my bedroom window is pretty boring.

To get myself moving on this, I shot the view from my office window. The big building on the left is Metropolitan Square, the tallest in STL. It is slightly shorter than the Arch. It's not a law, but there has been a general agreement here that no building should be taller than the Arch. The apparent difference in hight here is because the Arch is several blocks farther away and I was using a wide angle lens.

The Mississippi River is behind the Arch and beyond that. East St. Louis, Illinois.

TOMORROW: Look to the Western Skies
