The Burn of our Lady Artica

The culmination of Artica is the Burn of our Lady Artica. It was quite an experience along the riverfront in St. Louis, by the old Cotton Belt Depot. This yearly event is now definitely on my calendar.

Paint Louis 2019

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

Lotus

A different take on a Lotus flower. The sky was completely overcast with low clouds but the sun was beginning to shine through. Most people would should straight on or from above but I wanted to come at it from underneath. Post processing I increased the highlights in Lightroom while boosting the colors just a tad. I am very happy with the results.
