The Old Water Tower

The big old water tower at the Missouri Mines. I forgot I had taken this one. Look at that oil-rubbed bronze color. Love it.

Something bright, old, and simple for Saturday, huh? Have a great day!

Sleep with the Fishes

Heh. Now, don't panic. There aren't any pictures of mob snitches floating under water here. But, I couldn't resist the 1930s film noir reference on this picture that I kind of just took on a whim and ended up really liking!
 

St. Louis, MO, Missouri, St. Louis Zoo, Forest Park, Fish, Fishes, Exhibit
This is one of those exhibits at the St. Louis Zoo where you walk under the water, which is so cool! (And, on a hot day, it's literally cool, too.) The sharks and fish and turtles all swim above and around you. It actually kind of breathtaking. They have a new polar bear exhibit, built in the same way, that I'm looking forward to seeing soon.

We are so lucky in St. Louis - we have a world-class zoo, deeply committed to conservation work, with brilliant exhibits, constant improvements, and it is all free. In fact, our zoo is so awesome that it is ranked as the 3rd best zoo in the entire United States and the 4th best zoo in the world! If you make the trip to The 'Lou, do not miss The Zoo!

Now that I think on it, I feel a "safari" shoot coming on before the weather turns...

Just a Rainbow

I just managed to snag a couple of shots of a huge rainbow over my house the other night! It was literally disappearing before my eyes, but it was huge and clear and, if you looked close, there was a second one beside it.
 

St. Louis, MO, Missouri, Weather, Double Rainbow

I wish I had gotten a picture of myself taking this. Because I ran outside in my jammie pants and bare feet, ran across the four-lane road in front of my house, and grabbed what I could. (Of course, I didn't have a wide-angle lens available.)

Getting My Artsy On

It's been a successful week in my house already! And it's only Monday! First off, I submitted and was accepted into MySLArt.org's '33September' juried art exhibition hosted by The Old Orchard Gallery! This show, I did a quadtych of black & white abstracts!

Black & White, Abstract, Art Show, The Old Orchard Gallery,
These are the pictures I'm submitting! And, while I'm busy preparing for the art show, The Girl Child will be super-busy with rehearsals, her voice lessons, and her new job at Chuck E. Cheese! Because The Girl Child won the role of Sandy in "Grease" at the MHS Theater! A new production to add to her ever-growing resume that includes community theater after this summer's production of "The Skin of Our Teeth!"


It's going to be a hectic, but artsy, next few months here at the homestead! Fun stuff!
