St. Louis, St. Patrick - What's the Diff?

Well, for one thing, French and Irish accents are very different. One drinks wine, the other Guinness. But in this town, everyone drinks Budweiser.

Me and my telephoto lens found a good spot on the steps of a court house along the parade route. There were lots of good images and I'd like to post a set of them but there's too much on the schedule. Ordinarily, I'd finish this post on Sunday morning but I have something special to do. Every March, the St. Louis Camera Club hosts a full day seminar with a famous photographer. This year it is the otherworldly nature photographer, Frans Lanting, and that's where I'm spending my day. Might add something to this post Sunday evening.

TOMORROW: For St. Patrick's Day proper, the return of Gratuitous Cuteness.

Seminar with Frans Lanting, wow it's gonna be interesting seminar. I really like his landscape photography. We'll have parade St. Patrick tomorrow in downtown Cleveland.

I think this photo with the boots sends a powerful message. A good shot.
