Louis Archway - Jefferson
National Expansion Memorial, St. Louis, Missouri
To me, this is a "timeless" structure design. So clean and simple, yet
it stands with such majesty above the the skyline. Completed in 1965 it
looks as modern today as then. And the best part of visiting a place like
this is that even the worst photographers can take beautiful pictures of
the Archway. My biggest problem was trying to get the entire structure
into one shot. It's over 600 feet tall and 600 feet wide at the base. As
you can tell, I had to walk quite a distance away to get the shot I wanted.
Another photo of this archway, taken the same day, from a different view
can be found here in the Still
Life / Art section.
