Paint Louis 2016

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.

Hannibal Missouri

The wife and I spent a nice relaxing weekend in Hannibal Missouri. As we were walking around I saw this old Packard on the street. I loved how it looked against the old store fronts. The colour version is nice but I felt it looked and felt better in black and white.

Hello little one

Another wonderful morning out shooting wildlife and nature in the local area. Today I went to the Watershed Nature Center in Edwardsville. I had done shooting up there yesterday and wanted to go back. Just as I was finishing up I ran into this little fawn hiding in the grass. It was a bit wary of me but continued eating the grass for a few minutes then decided it had had enough of me and it took off. It is getting shots like this that make getting up early on my days off worth it.

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.
