St. Louis Skyline

One of my favorite views of the St. Louis skyline.  Taken atop one of the "painted ladies" in Lafayette Square, a St. Louis neighborhood dating back into the 1800s (one caveat to the blog will be the historical tours I plan to give you of St. Louis' historic neighborhoods).  I met a gentleman while walking around Lafayette Park.  We talked awhile and he offered the view from his roof.  I'm not normally this "risque" when it comes to strangers, but I'm glad I trusted this man.  The view was spectacular, and an adventure I won't forget.

Click to enlarge the "panoramic" view that is really just a panoramic crop.  (Image taken at ISO400, f/11, 1/1600th with my 18-55mm lens)
