The annual free concert on Art Hill in Forest Park by the world renown St Louis Symphony Orchestra always ends in fireworks, weather permitted. Members of the string section file out first since their instrument is the easiest to pack up. #slso #orchestra #fireworks #forestparkforever #arthill #2019 #concertphotography #grandbasin
Be sure to wear your feathers well, and be ready to look at others like “What....WHAT!”
The gorillas love 5pm, when local St Louis natives go home after yelling movie names and directions all day. Actually, after 5pm the Silverbacks become very active and relaxed and enjoy cold frosties. @stlzoo #silverback #hot #yolo #kingtungsten #instagram
There’s always one that stands out.
The other night backstage at The Divas with Voices with TC Chandler on the keyboards and a wave from diva @chrissyb_sings I think I heard a Dave Brubeck chord.
This morning is the heated competition for top dairy cow, which helps guide the breeds to remain the best they can be. The best shape, no legs (hocks) knocking, and consistent udders for optimal milking. #topcow #dairy @ilstatefair #tradition #traditions #purpose #truth
Today I stopped by the New Balance shoes corporate office in St Louis to deliver this years images from their annual New Balance Gives Back community work with the YMCA. While at the front desk I noticed two red books so I grabbed one and opened it in the middle. There on the page was a story about New Balance re-igniting jobs in Skowhegan Maine, which was hurting from the closing of their shoe factories. Hundreds of skilled shoe artisans with no work, but virtually overnight New Balance stepped in and changed the community. I have my own personal connection with Skowhegan Maine when I was selected to serve an artist residency for the 50th anniversary of the prestigious Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture. I had a paragraph in the New York Times during my stay in Maine, which I mentioned the pressures of being great came down to personal choice. You see, Skowhegan is world renown for its annual flock of the best 65 artists in the world and the work coming from artistic development. It’s up to you to be great, whether or not anyone is watching. @visitskowhegan @skow.art @skowheganstate @newbalance @newbalancestl #begreat #newbalance #igers #instagram #instagood #skowhegan #skowheganart @nytimes 8/96 #timingiseverything @ymca #givingback #givingbacktothecommunity
Nature is such a good sculptor. Sometimes one thing hold up another.
The core of Vianney HS education, the Marianist Brothers who live and die to teach. How many can say many of their high school teachers are buried in one spot. That’s pretty cool to think about. And it’s surrounded by the abstract art work of one of them, Bro.Mel Meyer. @vianneyhighschool #societyofmary #catholic
Driving under this foolishness yesterday. It will continue as long as everyone thinks they’re in control and drives like it’s just them in the world. Just be consistent and this will never happen to you.
Yes that’s a handbag and it’s only at Edgy Chic Boutique in beautiful Florissant MO. August is only a breath away and that means celebrations & new beginnings. @edgychicboutique #art #handbag #oldenburg #mindoveematter #edgychicboutique #instagood #onlineshopping
Steel on its way to supplying American industry. Steel was one thing that Germany didn’t have a natural abundant supply of during WWII and therefore the reason The Third Reich had to conquer Scandinavia for its iron ore to supply the shortage of steel as the war effort dragged on and they ran short on steel.
