Hey, those are some great KC shots. No complaints here. It really is a lovely town.
Lovely stuff! And yeah, it really is a straight shot. And I expect that's no accident. I believe all the major landscaping elements in that vista date to Shaw's life, save the lilly ponds. Which replaced earlier gardens or ponds along the more or less verbatim. Not completely certain about the rose ...
The Wuppertal railway is quite pretty, I confess. And the Shonan example is also fun, and I want to say one of their cars has a section with a glass floor so you can look down and see what's going on below you. That would be super-cool.
This one seemed to move very quickly. Main Steelcote building is to be open by May with the Columbia Oil building to be open by Fall. New apartment building going up on Theresa to break ground this summer. Looks pretty good. Might be a good idea to reopen (and rebuild) a crossing for Theresa over t...
First link: That's not a test track. It's a mockup that moves. It's maybe a hundred feet long if we're generous and the pod is moving at about four miles an hour. The materials appear too light. It has that stage set feel. There is literally no way to tell from that video how it's powered, but it's ...
Is there any evidence a pilot project has actually been built anywhere? Because there are a lot of reasons this wouldn't be practical and that it won't operate as advertised. Makes me think there's something fishy going on somewhere. (Rather like the "townhouses" that were to replace the little half...
Well, it snowed. And I liked Framer's snow pic. So I decided to try that myself. Sort of. And even though I had absolutely no reason to be out on the streets, there I was, tripod in hand trying to keep the worst of the snow off my lens. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7866/45794835565_a069eb9790_c.jp...
Interesting to see the historic tax credits and the new National Register listing. That really is a remarkably historic building. Not too many other buildings that deeply involved in the space program from that far back. And lord, they built everything there. It's not a terribly high profile buildin...
Oh, he's technically correct. It's just . . . so very simple. Security theatre. The site isn't really locked in any real way. I assure you, I'm neither a subscriber to that particular site nor much of a hacker. Thus I'm forced to assume they don't actually care and just do it for show. Just hit stop...
I will fight the urge to give a basic flight lesson, as I'm not even a pilot, but here's a diagram. Runway 24 is the one that cuts across the airport diagonally from northeast to southwest. And if you're going the other direction it's runway 6. Same strip of concrete, but the names are directionally...
Here's the text of the article: Richard Chaifetz has a passion for St. Louis, and now the Saint Louis University benefactor wants to expand his reach beyond the Midtown campus. Chaifetz, who donated $12 million to help build SLU’s on-campus arena that dons his name, says he doesn’t “just give money ...
So here's the full measure of my spotting Monday January 7. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4831/46669393351_1b252b38e0_c.jpg https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7901/45754301165_22d14c55ca_c.jpg https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4844/45754301045_d6c82d354a_c.jpg https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4838/466693920...
I've seen flights arrive 24 on FlightAware every once in a while, but that's literally the first time I've seen a departure that way. The fellow over on the Elevator Channel filmed an arrival on 6 once from a Cape Air Cessna. That was also quite impressive and unusual.Honestly, it didn't seem that a...
Even the "wrong" side of the building is pretty splendid. (Honestly a better view 280 days of the year.)
That's looking nice! Glad to see it.
This isn't really news, but I went out to take a few shots of the final WOW flight yesterday and got an interesting surprise . . . https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4838/46669392061_fca4c802d4_c.jpg The Last WOW https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7827/45754300645_247bd6b6c9_c.jpg They were taking off on ru...
Nicely done STLExplorer! Love the color and reflections in the first one and the general ambiance of the third one. And that hat! All great shots. :)
A tarasque! Your turtle dragon is a tarasque ! Not quite the most standard depiction, but the basic features of turtle and dragon are clear enough. (They're also usually depicted with a scorpion tail and lions head, which . . . if you squint just right that might have. And six bear paws. Which . . ....
Not sure what a gribbly bit is lol, but thanks for your kind words! Your lens would appear to have more leaves int he iris, for instance, which is supposed to be a sign of a good quality lens. And maybe your average better lens is also faster. Anyway, the more important thing is that you've used it...
Correct. MOT it is. For what it's worth, the "switcher" is an Alco Army Transportation Corps unit. C-C unit with regagable trucks. It's a little smaller than most contemporary C-C road units built for domestic consumption, but a good bit bigger than most domestic switchers. About on par with a GP7, ...
^The Mayor, You have a lot more gribbly bits in your lens than I do. Many points on those star-flares. Great shots. I particularly like the shot of the audience abuse lights at Busch. Great concert pic. And the long exposure of the barge lashup is neat too. Makes the river look kind of ghostly. ^Fra...
Not sure how difficult this one will really be. Could be really easy. Could be kind of a challenge. But I can offer photographic clues. I'll dedicate this one to "Papercup," who you can see hanging out the cab window of the nearest unit. https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3199/2359470344_2fb5000643_z.jp...
If you're going to know the inside of churches that's a good one to know. I don't know much about Frank de Sales, but his church is pretty sweet. (St. Francis de Sales: the "cathedral" of the south side, once home to one of the auxiliary bishops. Now officially an oratory, I believe it is. For folks...
Odds are good you've seen most of these, but here's a few of my night shots. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4898/45356800165_d789d3e441_c.jpg I rather enjoy the way the last fellow in line turned and looked at me before getting on the trolley. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7925/46544553122_4ec58e22...
^Why am I doing the construction thread? Man, you are all over this! Do they need approval? Are there any renderings? Torn on whether to add this one to the plans yet.
