Some friends and I went down to the Mississippi River in front of the Arch Saturday to get some photos of the river as it crested in the current flood. While not at the 1993 level it is the second highest level on record. This shot of the Lewis and Clark statue sums it up pretty well; the river is high!
Originally from Oregon and after a career in the Air Force I ended up settling down in the St. Louis area. I have always taken pictures but seven years ago I decided it was time to really start learning the art of photography. Between work and family what little free time is spent out exploring the region. I am fascinated with nature, the man-made world and the interaction between them. This is especially apparent in all of the urban decay that exists in St. Louis. Nature is reclaiming so many areas while the people who live there do their best to hang on. I also have a degree in Graphic Design so patterns, shapes, and textures also speak to me. View All Posts
