One of my favourite times of the year for photography is Paint Louis. It is usually held on Labor Day weekend and graffiti artists from all over come in to paint the flood wall south of the Arch grounds. Though there have been some issues over the years with illegal art going up in the city during the event the city is tolerant of the event at the wall. This first image is done by my friend Norm4eva. She is an amazing artist and I am so inspired by her work. More of her work can be seen on her Instagram account. Norm4eva on Instagram

The Cotton Belt in St. Louis.
Almost every year there is a graffiti artist gathering in St. Louis along the flood wall south of the Gateway Arch. Artists from all over the country converge and paint the wall with the approval of the city. There are some wonderful works created. This particular piece is by an artist called Norm4eva.
Smile! Hadn’t realized just how busy I have been lately until I looked at my last post. Between taking care of the family, school, and the new job not a whole lot of free time to do photography. But I finished up my paper for the term so the next 2 weeks in school will be a breeze. Hope to get out and shoot some this weekend. In the meantime smile!
Still going through shots from Paintlouis 2014. Someone had stuck some E.T. stickers on some of the posts down there. This one made me chuckle.
Today was the last day of Paintlouis 2014 along the flood wall south of the Arch. I went last year and loved seeing the artwork that is created with just spray cans and paint rollers. Here are just a few photos from the talented artists who have spent all weekend working their magic. More photos can be found on my Flickr site.
