Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves

Saint Louis is the perfect city for photographing curves. And to find them all you have to do is take a trip down to the riverfront and visit THE JEFFERSON NATIONAL EXPANSION MEMORIAL.

But everyone calls it the GATEWAY ARCH!

The ARCH actually is a 630-foot tall catenary curve planted 60-feet deep in the bedrock of a natural bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. Catenary means it is the shape a free-hanging chain takes when held at both ends.
