Fine Art

largest steam engine in the world.

If I die before I’m known as an artist,
I’ll surely be known as a dreamer.

It was twilight March 6th, 2020 and it was chilly. Myself, my partner Patty, and a handful of photographers walked out onto the Martin Luther King Bridge spanning the Mississippi River in Saint Louis to photograph the Eads Bridge and the Arch. The MLK was closed due to construction on the Illinois side. We were hoping for some clouds but were given a clear sky. The upside was no wind, which greatly enhanced the reflection on the water.
In 1867 (just two years after the civil war), the St. Louis Bridge and Iron Company hired James Buchanan Eads to build a bridge over the river to facilitate commerce in the expanding post war national economy. Dedicated July 4, 1874 this graceful work of art and architecture sits pretty for a photo session with ole Mike Winslow 146 years later. This is a 25 second exposure.The Martin Luther King bridge over the Mississippi River was closed for construction on a brisk evening March 6, 2020 when myself, Patty and a handful of photographers walked on to the bridge to ply our skill at capturing the Eads Bridge and the Gateway Arch in St. Louis.
