Paragraph 1: Gray. Paragraph 2: JOY!

.
Forest Park 2010-12-04 4

Yesterday was a nasty late autumn day. The temperature hovered around freezing while a strong, damp wind blew from the north. The skies were leaden. Forest Park looked like a series of images from a Zoloft advertisement.

But wait, there's more! Last night was the opening and awards ceremony of Seen 2010, STL's big year-end photography show. I WON BEST IN SHOW, YOU KNOW, LIKE, FIRST PLACE IN THE WHOLE THING with this entry that took the Architecture division. I also placed first in the humor division with this one. So woo hoo! La vita รจ bella.
