Over The Western Wall

Busch Stadium and Downtown 2013-08-14

Wednesday night's baseball game began a little before sunset. After I took the photo in yesterday's post I went to the western side of the upper level and shot some more.

This one has a nice mix of old and new architecture. The tall building on the left is the federal courthouse (for the lawyers - USDC E.D. Mo plus the 8th Circuit). The red brick building below it and running into the center is an old warehouse that's been converted into a beautiful Westin Hotel. If you look closely you can see a station of our light rail system at bottom center. The tower in the background at right center, over the brick turret of the stadium, is where our firm is located.

By the way, our Cardinals took Thursday's game from the division-leading Pittsburgh Pirates 6-5 in 12 innings. The Cards took two of the three games in an important series, leaving them two games behind with a month and a half of the season to go. The Cardinals are the state religion around here.

I missed your beautiful arch post and I like the mixture of bricks and high rises.

Quite a grand view, Bob!

In a couple of weeks I'll be doing a baseball blog...I'll have to make use of the Cardinals.
