I love this house. Love it.
Daily Shoot #76: Get up close and personal with a building today. Make a photo of an architectural detail. I think I was supposed to pick a little detail and do a close-up. Oh Well :)

This is Research Building at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. I spent a great deal of time here as an undergraduate and a masters graduate student.

I took this picture especially for Fr. Leo! It's my tie-dye t-shirt collection! I'm still looking for a stuffed tie-dye basset hound.
Daily Shoot Assignment #69: We're all collectors of something. Find an interesting way to display and make a photo of a collection today.

The McKinley Bridge and the Eads Bridge. The Eads Bridge has the stone piers.
That's the Mississippi River!
Daily Shoot #68: Let's have some fun on a Friday. Make a photo that goes with the title (or lyrics) of a song. Interpret away!

I went to Columbia Bottoms Conservation Area, where the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers happens. There are exploration stations that give information about the wildlife in the area and the importance of the river. These are the mosaics and tiles from those stations.
I like the turtle and the duck the best I think. Or the gecko.

This was taken off the River des Peres greenway/trail in South St. Louis City. The water in the background is the River des Peres. It was a horridly dreary day.
Today's dailyshoot.com assignment, #62, is "One man's trash is another's treasure. Make a photo of something discarded or abandoned today."

I went to St. Francis Xavier, the College Church, on the campus of St. Louis University this morning. Today's dailyshoot.com assignment was converging lines. I was stumped as to how I was going to do this being I don't live in Montana where you can see the highway lines converge. Then I saw these stained glass windows in the church. I like how in the world window, the center is Rome. All roads lead to Rome. I also like how St. Louis is marked in the North America window.
I also noticed the theme for the stained glass windows in the church. Jesuits are awesome!

I was in my adviser's office this afternoon. This is part of his frog collection. Can you tell he's primarily a biologist? I was going to take pictures of his more interesting specimen collection and his John Deere tractors but my camera freaked out and died. It's alive now.

Here's the ice mound in Boathouse Lake in Carondelet Park. It's probably over 8 feet tall as I saw some people standing next to it and it was much taller than them.
I also caught a rainbow caused by the spray of the fountain.

It was finally warm enough to take Jake over to Carondelet Park for a walk. You can see the rock bridge that goes across Horseshoe Lake in the background. The little rock house off to the left is a restroom.
By Popular request:
This is the view from the other side of the Lake. You can see the ducks on the pond. A couple of the ducks are actually geese. The biggest was abandoned in the park last winter.

Today's dailyshoot.com assignment was to take a picture of your favorite color. My favorite color is blue, but I also adore rainbows and tie-dye. So here are my teddy bears sitting on my tie-dyed sheets.

These my basset Jake's pawprints in the snow. It's alot harder to take a picture of pawprints in the snow than I thought. But I think this shot is better than my first attempt. The snow is deeper, giving more contrast.

Photo taken from my porch into Carondelet Park. It's snowing!
I tried this challenge as part of daily assignment to photograph a light source. I thought catching the snowflakes would be neat as they fell in front of said light source.

This wasn't quite what I had in mind for today's photo, but the opportunity presented itself. It was and still is incredibly cold today. When I was getting out of my car, I noticed the heat radiating from the car was creating shadows on the garage door.
