Strange Folk Festival 2014

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.

Scotland in St. Louis

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.

A day out taking photos

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.

Hummers!

The hummingbirds are still around. In fact they are quite active today and fighting each other over the feeder.
