I Got Rhythm

.
Fence Rhythms

There are times when nothing much is going on around town and yet the hungry maw of the blog must be fed. So I go out cruising (driving, of course, because this is the U.S.), looking for anything that catches my eye. Sometimes I think of the old song by St. Louisan Chuck Berry:
Ridin' along in my automobile...
Cruisin' and playin' the radio
With no particular place to go.
This got my attention while driving across quiet Tower Grove Park. Skreech, pull to the curb. So there I was, sitting in a damp culvert, thinking I was the flippin' Piet Mondrian of South St Louis, when someone walking a dog passed by and gave me the strangest look.

belle référence musicale, j'ai eut l'occasion de voir Chuck Berry a un festival de rock sur Paris, c'etait magique, une vraie pile electrique

Too green for Mondrian! I always see yellow and red and black and blue! But I like this!

Did you receive my email?

Very good. Almost a bit of 3-D here.

Go Bob! So many older guys never get off the couch or swivel their eyes away from the TV! I, for one,am glad you're out there, cruisin'! I enjoy your photos and the commentary!

I never doubted for one minute that you 'had rhythm' Bob, you're the new and improved Piet Mondrian, he's so 'yesterday'!!

Broadway Boogie Woodie. Does St. Louis have a Broadway?

I know...I get those look sometimes... And often I look back and still see the person staring at whatever it was I was shooting. I like your Mondrian.
