The Lounge>All I Have is a Photograph....
gblowfish 08:05 PM 04-05-2020
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.

Feb 1st, 2003 the Space Shuttle Columbia broke up and blew apart on re-entry. Took this picture later that same day, flag flying half mast over I-70 and Noland Road in Independence.

I shed a few tears the first time I saw the wall. I always wondered (and was grateful) why my name wasn't there. First time I visited the wall - honestly, I cried like a baby.

God bless

Plants wheat. And in this case fertilizer also.

This is the USNS Mercy. I took this picture when my wife and I were on a sightseeing cruise of the San Diego Harbor.

Just before this craziness began I was in Juneau Alaska for work. This was the only day the sun came out while I was there and tried to snap a few pictures. Absolutely breathtaking scenery. I gotta get back for a proper vacation.

It's now a historic site. I've always loved the grounds, and over the years have taken pictures of my cars out front of the carriage house. Pictures of my 2002 Jeep & 2015 Subie. My wife and I restored a 1997 Cougar (The Big Blue Cat) and just got it finished up last summer. We're the only owners. It's the last big Cougar Ford built, XR-7 with performance package. Everything has been restored bumper to bumper. Great ride. This picture is in front of my old high school football field.
She's beautiful... You are a lucky man...:-)
