Ethical Society of St. Louis

The incredible ceiling inside the Ethical Society of St. Louis. I couldn’t stop staring at it.

Taking a walk at lunch around Scott Air Force Base I got a chance to take a picture of the Luftbrücke. It is a sculpture commemorating the Berlin Airlift. There is a companion piece to this, which is located at the former Rhein Main Air Base in Frankfurt Germany, where I was also stationed in the mid-90s. It is a testament to the men and women who kept the supplies flowing to the city of West Berlin during the blockade. If you are ever on the base stop and get the chance stop to take a look.


Leaf in B&W

We got some snow overnight so Monday morning I got out to do some shooting. Winter is truly here in the St. Louis region with the temps only in the single digits. I saw this leaf lying in the pristine snow and had to take a photo. Decided I wanted to convert it to black and white.



This year most of my photography friends and I have been on a quest for sunflowers. Many of the early plantings were washed away with all the spring rains that we had. But I’ve managed to find a few patches here and there on the Illinois side of the river from St. Louis. This beauty is from a fairly large field just east of Alhambra.



While I was at the Watershed Nature Center this morning I was watching some birds at a feeder. As I turned around this is what I saw. Thankfully the standoff ended peacefully.
