Beauty And The Beasts

Jaime's Wedding 10

A detail of the beautiful bride. I'm told that the pearls have been in the family for ages. Below, the ring bearer and flower girl during the wedding ceremony. They apparently thought they had been invited to a fancy-dress wrestling match.

I've got a bit more KC stuff. The Thursday Arch Series will be back this week, and it's an unusual one. It hit me this morning that we're leaving for Seattle on Saturday. I thought I had another week.

Meanwhile, back in The Lou, the Cardinals played the Washington Nationals in the early phase  of the playoffs. Washington won 3-2 on Sunday but we gave 'em a good 12-4 thrashing yesterday. With an odd starting time of 3:37 in the afternoon, the light creeping across the field was strange.

I don't think I would want anyone taking a photo of my skin at that close range.

I love the play in the bottom of the 6th inning when the Cardinals runner advanced from first to third on a bunt, and then scored when the Nationals had to have their infield in for a play at the plate and could not handle a sharp grounder.

Why couldn't they do something like that in Sunday's game?

Lovely pearls!

Best of luck to the Cards!

The pearls is just a beautiful shot B. The beasts......verifies that kids don't need to be in the wedding party.

And I know NOTHING about baseball but that last shot.....well the light knocks me outta the park.

The shadows in the park echo the Arch. Graceful effect.

Your two photos from the wedding are terrific. That reminds me. We are still waiting for the photos from my daughter's wedding five weeks ago. Note to self: be patient.

All four photos are wonderful, each in their own style. What a great selection. You're leading a full life, aren't you?
