Today we went to the 9th annual Strange Folk Festival in O’Fallon. It’s really grown over the years and is a lot of fun. There are a lot of great artists and craftsmen there selling their wares. More photos on my Flickr albums Strange Folk Festival.

A bit of Scotland in St. Louis today. The family and I went to the St. Louis Scottish games at Forest Park. Lots of highland games, food, drink, and fun all around. Oh yeah, lots of bagpipes too. More photos on my Flickr albums Scottish games.

There was a beautiful sunrise this morning as I was heading to work. I really missed the peak color but was able to finally get pulled over where I could get a decent shot. It was still colorful and it turned out to be a good day all the way around.

I love going to Horseshoe Lake State Park and looking for birds. Besides the pelicans yesterday I was able to get this nice silhouette shot of a Great Blue Heron taking off.

Seems like all I’ve been photographing lately are the STL250 birthday cakes so I decided to get up early and do some sunrise shots. There has been some great fog all week long when I’ve driven to work but of course this morning when I have the time to do some shots nothing. But I did manage to get a decent shot with the sun just showing through the break in the clouds. After that it was off to the flea market in Belleville and the Oktoberfest celebration after that. Here is the sunrise shot and links to some flea market photos.

During a quick stop at the St. Louis Art Museum yesterday I noticed these half circles on one of the walls. I’m not sure if it was an exhibit or just part of the decor but I liked the look.

Here is cake #252 for STL250’s Cakeway to the West cake hunt. Not sure if it went out Friday night or this morning but it’s a nice cake. Just across the street on the hill is the UMSL cake.
