Wits End Photography
Welcome to Wits End Photography, my name is Jenn Mishra. I'm an American photographer born in Colorado and based in the St. Louis metro area. I love to travel and have travelled extensively in the United States, Europe and Thailand. But even when at home, I try to keep the same sense of adventure – looking for novelty in the everyday; finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. St. Louis, like most cities, has beauty and decay, but the most satisfying photographs find the beauty in the decay. I scour the city and surrounding areas, looking for texture and life in architecture and landscapes. Everyone has a history and every place is central to a story.
The USS Inaugural broke free of her moorings along the Mississippi River during the 1993 flood and sunk just south of the Gateway Arch. The wreck is hidden for most of the year under, but emerges in low water. Sony A7RIII 16mm 1/30@f16 ISO 400.
