Okay, back to shots of the home town. We don't have a big-time skyline but it's something. The tall building at right-center (Metropolitan Square) and the one to the left with the dome on top (federal courthouse) are actually about the same height, both barely shorter than the Arch. My office is in the dark, grid-like building, one back from the right side.

By the way, yesterday and today's pictures are both HDR images. There are some other people out there using the technique. Have a look at the B&W HDR group on Flickr

TOMORROW: Thursday Arch Series

Is that grid like building the old Mercantile Bank Building? If it is, that is where I worked when I was on the project there for two years back in the 90's.

I like this shot very much.

Sharon - the light colored building on the far right with the grid window pattern is the Railway Exchange Building, the former headquarters of the May Corportation until they sold out to Federated. There's still a Macy's there but not much else. My building, the Laclede Gas Building, is the higher one just to the left. The Mercantile Bank Building (now US Bank Building) is out of the picture to the right.

The HDR makes this one look surreal or maybe like a rendering. Interesting.
