Malcolm Martin

.
Earlier this month, I had a couple of posts about Malcolm Martin Memorial Park and Overlook. It's the superb new viewing platform in East St. Louis, Illinois, facing the Mississippi, downtown St. Louis and the Arch. See my post of June 11 for more info. At the very end there is a statue of Mr. Martin, sitting in the place his vision created, looking back across the river at the city with a small, satisfied smile.

Oh goodness, this is too perfect to just stay online, it needs to go in a BOOK!

Great photo In all my years living in St. Louis in the 1960's, we never went to the East St. Louis riverfront.

Amazing photo the other day of the farmer with the Model A Fort in his garage. I love the reflection in the window. That is a classic.

The sculpture is such a blessed relief to the usual human representation: it is full of life. You composition adds to the effect.
