go to CAPeTURES
When I made the decision to move from Washington, DC to Cape Girardeau, Missouri this year, I knew that downtown was where I wanted to live. Referred to as Old Town Cape, downtown has character - from the Mississippi River to an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants to historical landmarks - its quaintness got my attention. Since I've moved here in April, I've taken over a thousand photographs. Of course, if you are an amateur photographer like me, only one out of every 100 photographs are worth keeping - and here are ten of my favorite captures from 2018.
|Downtown Cape Girardeau captured from the middle of the Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge ("the Bridge").|
|A chilly, almost gray rainy day but the colors of spring and the buildings of downtown shine through the misty drizzle.|

|Downtown Cape and the river captured from a hill on Bellevue Street.|
|Down on Main Street - it looks like Cape is nestled in the mountains from this capture.|

An early November snow blankets the railroad track, flood wall and the street lamps.
The bridge's lights reflect on the gray blue water of the Mississippi.
A new year and a new sunrise for more CAPeTURES - Happy 2019!
