I took this picture down at a riverfront park that I like to go to. I think there’s a great view of the Clark Bridge¬†from this vantage point, especially if I climb up on the railing and lean over the fence.

Today we had snow move in, so as rush hour was in full swing the light quality began to change. This muted blue wouldn’t be my first choice as a background color, but it does tend to seep in to all that surrounds it.

Why so blue?

Why so blue?

What I had hoped to get on my way home was a great shot of the approach lights into STL fading into the grayness of the snow, but the weather was still having a hissy fit so that opportunity was blown. Maybe tomorrow.

Day 35, snowed.

Happy February, y’all. It may take me all 28 days of the month to recover from January.

Not much in the way of an inspired picture this evening. I tried getting a clear shot of a barge plowing through the ice as it headed down the Mississippi, but I couldn’t get set up fast enough to capture it with a steady hand as it got further and further away. I pretty much ended up pointing and clicking like an idiot, hoping that at least one picture was good. It had such potential!

I didn’t get lucky. This, sadly, is the best of the bunch.

Don't be fooled by their lumbering appearance, they are quick little buggers.

Day 32, unimpressed.
