Working-Barges on the Missouri   2 comments

After I started yesterday to blog again about our „RailTrailsRoadTrip“ in October last year, to finally get that to an end, I decided to take that trip up again here, too, with some single pictures. Here, then, is one from our day 9, when we travelled from Collinsville/IL to Hermann/MO, and had a short stop at the banks of the Missouri River:

The „Chemicals Corner“ at a Gas Station   16 comments

That’s what I call these corners. And I keep saying, „You can go ahead and drink that stuff. It’s really ok. There’s nothing natural in it any more.“ But seriously: does anybody have any doubt why obesity is rapidly growing in the US?!

Who Produces That Stuff? Bayeer or Dow Chemicals?

St. Louis/MO – The Old Courthouse Mirrored   4 comments

Old and new – especially with the old mirrored in the new – present a very interesting contrast in St. Louis/Missouri:

From whichever perspective you look at it: the Gateway Arch in St. Louis/MO is a fascinating edifice:

St. Louis/MO Bridges – Continued   14 comments

It’s quite a while since I last published any of my pictures from our „RailTrailsRoadTrip“ in October last year. So I really need to continue. Here’s a picture of Eads Bridge. We passed underneath it on our 2-hour cruise of the waterfron to St. Louis.

This picture has been edited, I must admit, both with ACDSee Ultimate 9 [for a light equalizer] and with easyHDR [for enhancement of details], but I think this brings out the fine metal structure very well, even if it does look a tad artificial.

Lower Slaughter, GB   10 comments

For my first picture here after my pause in blogging, I’ve chosen one that I took in 2013 in the Cotswolds, in the picturesque little village of Lower Slaughter:

The original photo has been (slightly) enhanced with EasyHDR, a programme I have lately come to like.
