Gateway Arch


Here’s an old shot of ‘The Gateway to the West‘ I’ve re-edited. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Cameron Tucker: “Sidenote: We’re very good friends with a couple named Lewis and Clark. Clark bought a big, sparkly belt in New Orleans that he calls his Louisiana Purchase.”

  1. Oooh! I’m instantly thining “forward” but that because of the recent photo challenge 😛 My brain got adjusted to appreciating forwardness… (however, the sane part of my mind recognizes this for it is – a bridge on an alien ship!!)

    • I know how that goes! As soon as you’re ‘clued in’ to a word / phrase / subject matter it’s almost impossible not to find connections all over the place! Hahaha… including when you are in outer space!

  2. Fabulous post! Love the image of the Arch. Sweet reminder of home for me. And the quote… Modern Family! Well done! Have a great weekend. Robyn

    • Thank you so very much! I’m not originally from here (so maybe that has something to do with it), but every time I see the arch I’m still floored by it…
      Hahaha… yeah, I really like Modern Family, too… definitely one of my ‘new-er’ favorites!
      Thank you again, Robyn!

    • Thank you, Ms. C!
      Agreed! All the characters are so unique (and well-developed) I don’t think I could pick a favorite, either. Although some of the ‘not entirely thought through stuff’ that Phil says / does… seems like an extroverted version of me sometimes. 🙂

  3. Very sculptural. The last time I approached the arch I was going 55 with 4 lanes of traffic, in the worst construction zone I ever saw. I didn’t even take my eyes off the road to glance at it, so thanks for this.

    • Many thanks, Astra! And I’m impressed! You’ve got much better balance than I do… I doubt I could make it more than a few feet without getting dizzy and falling off!

  4. A nicely crafted piece of artistry my great friend,
    as always you have offered us a glimpse into your
    uniqueness 🙂 Do have a wicked weekend SIG 🙂

      • It has been a very cold weekend and snow is forecast so I am busy waxing the runners on my sledge 🙂 lol Well it’s the thought that counts, in reality I will be sat in front of the fire watching the Flintstones 🙂 lol

    • In a way the arch (or details of it) remind me of those ‘futuristic’ designs you’d see for cars, etc. in the 60’s – kind of cool, I think.
      Thank you very, very much!
