The glory days are over for this Lotus flower. Everyone is always taking pictures of the beautiful blooms (myself included) but I also find myself drawn to those who have long since lost their luster. There is still beauty in the decay though.
This shot sums up St. Louis so well. The beauty of the Arch and what it represents. Then you have the decayed abandoned building. There is so much potential in this region. It has gotten better since I first moved here but there is so much more that could be done to help the people who call it home.
Same roof as the previous post, but at a different angle and a bit of processing to make it look more dramatic.

The night before Halloween I met up with some friends down at the Cotton Belt Depot for a little party. We all dressed up and my friend Sue absolutely killed as the Bride of Frankenstein.
The burning of Our Lady of Artica at the Cotton Belt Depot in St. Louis. This annual event is fantastic and I love photographing it.
Not sure why there are goat heads on items around the Civil Courts building downtown St. Louis but they look pretty cool.
Out with Photo Flood STL last Saturday and as the outing was finishing up I caught this view of the St. Louis Wheel looking down Clark Street as the sun was setting.
A view of the Arch from the Stifel Theater. I took this back in 2015 when a group of us got free reign inside to photograph.
