Why The Lou Is The Lou

Apotheosis of St Louis

We got to the George Caleb Bingham show at the art museum yesterday. It was well worth the effort, a survey of America's romanticized view of life on the inland riverways in the 1840s and 50s. Locals. if it sounds interesting, better hurry. It closes today.

I'm really short on material but all I had to do was step out the door to snap one of the local icons. There are a couple of good events so shoot today if it doesn't pour. Which it might.

Nice when you can just open the door a and get a good photo.

That is a pretty nice statue to have outside your door.

You might not be happy about the rain Bob, but that sky made a super dramatic backdrop for your shot today!
