Walking along North Main Street in Old St. Charles, Missouri is always fun to do.  The shops, the historic buildings, the restaurants, wineries and pubs and on this day a herd of Pokemon Go people all hunched over looking at their phones.  I chose to ignore them and just walked along looking for something to photograph I hadn’t done before and then there it was.  It was an opening between the buildings that was covered by an ornate grating on top of a half wall.

I had to stand on my tiptoes to peek through and I liked what I saw so doing my best to hold the pose I took this shot.  The top dark area is one of the bars and the bottom is the marble (I think) sill of the opening.  From this interesting Main Street view between two close buildings you can see the parking lot behind the buildings, across part of the Katy Trail and right to the Missouri river.

    A nice eye for detail.

    You didn’t any strange stares? Of course not. All those Pokemon go people were looking at their phones. 😉
