THE DAILY POST WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: DREAMY

This week, we’d like to see an image that looks dreamy to you. A photo of a place you often visit in dreams. A snapshot of your dreamy boy- or girlfriend. A scene that looks a bit out-of-this world. Take us on a flight of fancy!  For more information, click here!

Dreamy to me is when I get home from an afternoon trip to the Art Museum, and all the photos I took seem to be looking back at me.DSC00615

THE DAILY POST WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: SIGNS

For this challenge, share an image of a sign: it can be a sign near your home — a comforting sight after a long journey — a sign that doubles as art, or other types of signs that hold meaning for you.  For more information click here!

 SIGNS

This is a photo taken at the Maplewood Station of the local Metrolink System and the sign is on the bridge that carries the trains across Manchester Road. As strange as it seems, City of Maplewood ends just west of the bridge. So anyone driving into the City Of Manchester will be able the read the name correctly in their rearview mirror. The sign is actually a work of art … part of the transit system program of displaying a work of art in each of the stations in the metropolitan area. Here’s a close-up of the sign.DSC00353_2

The artist created his letters from the remains of an early 20th Century home that had once stood near the sight of the station. And if you’re wondering, the sign on the other side of the bridge reads MAPLEWOOD.

And while we’re on Manchester Road, here’s another sign you should see.Route^^

Manchester Road was part of the Original Route 66 going through Saint Louis.

Also to keep my constant companion happy, here’s a picture of her sign.ReneeSign

 

WORDLESS WEDNESDAYS – Renee’s Snake

To be, or not to be …. STREET ART!

The Saint Louis Metro-transit System has an ongoing project of adding works of art to the many Metro Stations of its system. Some have been classics.  But the latest entry is a real head scratcher. It was recently added to the Shrewsbury Station.Art?

The name of this work is LONDON … and frankly, I just don’t get it!  While it does cast an interesting shadow, it still looks like an elongated AC exhaust port.

WORD PRESS WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: NIGHTTIME

What nocturnal photos do you like taking? Whether it’s a starry sky, a street lamp, or the shadows cast by your cat, share them with us. Your shot can be outdoors or indoors, blurry or crisp, overexposed or ominously dark. As every owl (and night owl) knows, nighttime is when the real action starts.

 For more information, go here!

Personally, I seldom go out with my camera at night. And when I do, it’s to take pictures of weather, snow covered trees or the moon.Moon

This was my shot of the last SUPER MOON OF THE SUMMER. Photographing the moon involves a lot of guess work, luck, and a lot of throwaway photos. Also any haze in the sky … even though you can’t see it … will give you a photo of the moon lacking detail.

THROWBACK THURSDAY … or old pix that get my goat!
