The Gateway Arch at 50 – A Photo Essay – St. Louis, Missouri

Today I was enticed downtown with the prospect that the Gateway Arch was to be lit with golden spotlights for its 50th birthday. Alas, the timeframe when I could be downtown meant that I was able to catch the golden effect only on the way back to my car. However, there were plenty of other golden moments when the sun and area lights glinted off the Eero Saarinen’s masterpiece in cool ways that I was able to capture. In this collection, I have simply represented the Arch as it is today, in the process of renovation to become more organically connected to downtown and even more of a wonder. I can’t wait.
