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.

It took me a couple second to recognize that it was not moving left or right, which meant it was either moving directly away from me or directly towards me.

Turns out it was moving right at me. I took cover after snapping the picture. The NWS damage path the next day showed it got about a mile from us and then cut hard to the southwest and dissipated.

That first one is pretty scary. I hope you survived.

We don't really see big storm fronts in Denver. The mountains are to our west and they tend to disrupt things. While approaching storms are sometimes scary looking, they were interesting to see when I was growing up in the Midwest.

None of those storms hit us directly. The last one that did was the August 10th derecho.

I wasn't home when it happened but I do have pics like this:

Well, shit. Looks like a lot of Estes is getting evacuated. Hope you're well.

Mandatory evacuation called around noon. Holy crap, coming down that mountain was a surreal experience. You have to be able to see smoke cloud, it was like driving into the night.

Yeah, we've been able to see it more days than not lately. You good? Let me [know if (weird autocorrect there)] you're stranded without a place to stay.
