Photo Challenge: Lines


Caution tape

When thinking about lines, the St. Louis Arch comes to mind, and so I went and took some pictures!


The St. Louis skyline


The Arch


More of the same, but it's very cool at night!



Verne by the Arch


If you've never been here, it looks very small from far away. It's rather disappointing actually, and then you get up close to it, and it's quite large.


At night, the light is constantly changing and reflecting in different ways. See my shadow? I feel like Where's Waldo.



And a few other favorites from earlier in the week. Mac,

and bread, of course.

Join Rebecca for more Foto Friday pictures.

Fun lines.
This is an interesting exercise that you pursue each week.

Have you been to the museum that is underneath the arch? Really cool Westward Expansion museum! Tim really wants to go up in the arch on that ride...he'll have to take one of the kids, cause I ain't going!

Great shots at night!

What an awesome view of the arch. I've never been there and would love to see it someday. I like the lines on the bread board too.

ooh, the one of the caution tape is beautiful, Tracy. also, have you been inside the arch? my grandparents were from st. louis, and before they passed we would visit them there every year or so. going inside the arch was one of my favorite (and most nervewracking) things to do! you can actually feel it sway in the wind a bit!!

Rebecca said...

The top two are my favorites. What great views and the amount of light on that caution tape is just perfect.

Is that artisan bread you have made? We had some HOT from the oven with dinner last night too!

I'm going to have to stop visiting your blog before lunch. All of the food pictures make me hungry:)

The caution tape is great!
I visited the arch when I was 11. Thats where I learned I'm afraid of heights. I liked the museum underneath better....
Beautiful pictures Tracy!

The Arch pictures are great! I've never been there, so it was fun seeing it through your camera. :)

I've flown over it but never seen it up close and personal. It is so awesome to see. I want to come to STL and see it in person.

Tracy ~ I keep meaning to share something every time I see Mac with the accordion.

Background: My father is a very accomplished guitarist. He taught himself as a boy and then proceeded to learn every instrument he desired. He wanted lessons more than anything - but his family had no money (another lengthy story in and of itself). So when he became a parent he made sure my sister and I had music lessons. In addition to that he continued to bring home all sorts of instruments for us [really for him - ;o)].

My sister - in addition to piano - took organ lessons. One day Dad brought home an accordion for her. We'll never really know whether she had it in her to play or not because e.v.e.r.y s.i.n.g.l.e time she attempted to practice our teeny, tiny dog (Miss Priss - or Prissy to her friends) would howl her little heart out. She was itty-bitty but so loud; it just never failed to bring us to tears in laughter.

And so each time you show Mac playing a polka ... it makes me smile!

Sorry to be a bit off topic. As always your photos are wonderful!

Enjoyed your pictures of the arch. I grew up on St Louis and was a little girl when they were building the arch. I remember checking the newspaper for the picture journal they had in there on the progress every week.

Several men were killed while involved in the building. You are right, it is quite an impressive structure. And the underground museum on Westward Expansion is really cool. I hope you visited there.

Your pictures are GORGEOUS!! They make me want to see for myself.

The "Caution Tape" picture has a really earie feel to it.

The arch shot at night with the lights of the city is stunning- it should be a postcard!

Did you go up in it? We did once and I hate heights. The next time my husband and father took our girls. I stayed on the ground :D
