Saint Charles Missouri 031410

Just a few miles from Saint Louis, on the bank of the Missouri River, the city of Saint Charles is a living piece of history.
This was the first Capital of the State of Missouri, serving as such from 1821 until 1826.
Much of the old city remains. Main Street is lined with shops in structures that show much of the influence of the French settlers, who held this territory just a few years earlier.

Weather on the 14th of March was drizzly and overcast, the outward flow from a NorEaster spinning more than a thousand miles away, on the East Coast of the USA.

Camera body: Pentax K 10 D digital SLR. Lens: standard issue 18 ~ 55 mm zoom, f/3.5 ~ 5.6.
All shots are available light and hand held.
