Back To Color

Floodwall 2012-10-28 2

Okay, yesterday's stark monochrome photo went over like the proverbial lead balloon. Let's turn back to color, and for a reason. By noon tomorrow I'll be in a much more colorful place than St. Louis. Details in Sunday morning's post.

These shots were taken a few steps from the location of yesterday's picture. That's the railroad bridge across the Mississippi I mentioned. Then I just turned around to take the other photo. Leonor K. Sullivan was a member of Congress from here a ways back. I like the name Wharf Street. It's solid, hard-working and simple. Gorgeous light.

By the way, Jarred Gastreich, the new local photoblogger I introduced on Tuesday, had me on his blog on Friday. Click here. We're getting him into CDP.

I gotta tell you, Bob, I always am a bit sad to see graffiti all over a long wall like this.
