Setting Up

Yes, I rode to work today.

It was a cloudy, gray and moist day, but not wet.

The reddish building is City Hall. The building with the green roof is the Peabody Opera House. And, tucked between them is the old Municipal Court Building.
This weekend is the Taste of St. Louis. A few weeks ago, after I'd finished taking a photo of the Eagleton Courthouse, a stranger said to me, "If you go around the corner there is a great shot of the Arch." I assured him I knew that. I told him I often took photos on my lunch hour. He admitted he was a first time visitor to the City. He was here for business and was so impressed with the City he was thinking of coming back with his family for the Taste of St. Louis. He asked me what I thought of his plan. I told him I'd never been, but the "Taste" had become a really big deal. Today as I noticed the workers setting up for the festivities I thought of him. I wonder if he is going to be here this weekend. If hope so, the weather is supposed to be spectacular.
  • 67F/19C and overcast with almost a mist, but not quite for the ride to work.
  • 70F/21C and all most a mirror image of the mornings weather for the home ride.


  1. We love the Taste! We will head down on the scoots, perfect for getting close. It is a fun people watching event.

  2. What a great photo of downtown. What a great city! I would LOVE to visit the Taste of STL! But my travel budget is 0 now. :*^(
