30 Words :: St Louis



630 feet
rising straight to the heavens
stainless steel arc
gleaming
in the noonday sun
this monument
is a testament 
to American ingenuity, determination
 an architectural wonder of the world


I am visiting St Louis with my daughter's softball team in the Northwest National ASA Softball tournament (btw...they won their first two games 18-1 and 11-2). It wouldn't be a complete visit without a trip to the Gateway Arch. It truly is a marvel. You get two pictures (and a bit more than 30 words): the first is one with awesome perspective and framing that my husband (!) took with my regular camera, and the second is on that I took on my iPhone with my new Photojojo.com fisheye lens that snaps on to the outside of your smartphone camera from the same spot. How cool is that!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The premise of 30 Words Thursdays is simple...
Take an image (preferably one you shot, or have permission to use).
Write 30 Words about it. No more. No less.
Post it each Thursday.
Add your link to the InLinkz on my 30 Words Thursday post.
(InLinkz code will be open for one week.)
Enjoy seeing what others have captured by visiting them and leaving a comment.

These are awesome! I have one that looks almost exactly the same as the top picture, but the clouds look much cooler in yours!
