The Lounge>All I Have is a Photograph....

With all the shelter at home stuff, thought I'd start a fun thread to help get our minds on better times. I am not a professional or high level amateur photographer, but I have taken some cool pictures over the years. If you've taken pictures that you're proud of, how bout posting a couple,and explaining what they are?

I'll Start:

St. Louis July 2003. I was staying downtown in that beer can shaped hotel by the arch. I got a call around midnight that my mom was taken to ICU in Arkansas, and was in bad shape. I got up at dawn as the sun was rising over the Mississippi river. I took this picture looking east. Went to the chapel in the center and said a prayer for my parents. Mom got out of ICU 66 days later.

Alley Springs, MO: From around 2002, near Eminence,MO.

Hotel Bothwell, Sedalia,MO. Shot at sundown in downtown Sedalia.

Desoto Sign, Carthage, MO. On a trip to Arkansas, took the scenic route 2018.

Missouri Hwy 13 Bridge, Lexington, MO: Looking north during the flood of 1993.

Digging the bridge pic G-blow, you're speaking my language there, I could fill the thread with bridge pics.

I'll start with a few of my favorites...

I actually climbed underneath the Deception Pass bridge in Washington state for this one. The wife was not amused, I think it was worth it.



Next up, the incredible High Trestle Trail Bridge outside of Des Moines



It's even better at night


Lastly, the Bob Kerry Pedestrian Bridge in my hometown

Oh, fun. Nice photographs so far. That bugeater bridge at night is pretty amazing.

I'm not a good photographer, so my best photos are about interesting subjects. Here's a fun one that I took inside Abu Simbel in Egypt, and a picture of me standing between the Colossi of Memnon on that same trip. And another one of the Great Pyramid.

A few non-bridge pics...

My beloved Jeep Grand Cherokee with the backdrop of Grand Lake of the Cherokees at sunset.



The Durango-Silverton railroad perched waaaaay up high on a cliff...



The sun breaking through the clouds overlooking Sheridan, WY and the Big Horn mountains in the background. I fell in love with Wyoming on this evening.

My pictures these days are mostly my kids and crop porn. I'll see if I can dig up any decent ones.

Ah hell, I'm not done yet. This is the Meridian bridge in Yankton, SD. It's two levels, originally designed for railroad on the lower level and vehicle traffic on the upper, but ended up just being used for vehicles for many years, one way on each level. It has since been replaced by a modern bridge nearby and is now converted to a pedestrian bridge.

Yankton, South Dakota side



Nebraska side



Lower level



Upper level




AND I SWEAR I AM DONE AFTER THIS ONE

Sailboat Bridge over Grand Lake of the Cherokees, Grove, OK

I wish I was there right about now. Social distancing isn't a problem. :-)

Since we're posting bridge pictures, here's one that I took in South Korea long ago on a trip there. It was some "lover's bridge", but I don't remember the story.

And when I departed on my freighter a couple of years ago, we went under the Bay Bridge (second picture) and the Golden Gate Bridge (third picture - not a great picture, but it was dark). I took a deep breath going under the Golden Gate, because at that point I was committed for 19 nights and I still didn't really know what I was getting into. But it ended up being great.

Isn't the Bay Bridge the double decker that collapsed in several areas in the '88 earthquake? I don't recall it being a suspension bridge...has it been replaced?

I did a bridge:

Amelia Earhart Bridge.
