This is probably the photographic view of the Gateway Arch that almost everyone recognizes. It shows the Arch in the foreground and the Old Courthouse centered between the legs. To take this picture you have to cross the river to the Gateway Observation platform in East Saint Louis.
But a couple of weeks ago I was able to take a picture showing the scene from a reverse point of view.
And there’s only one spot where you can get this picture … you have to stand in the exact center of the band stand in Kiener Plaza. You could even get a better picture by climbing on top of the band stand. You could also get arrested, too!
Now you’ve seen the Arch from both sides! Enjoy, it’s my Pick Pic Of The Week!
