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…..love 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!

      • 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!
      🙂
