Chill


 Forest Park 2016-02-27 7

People hanging out in and around the Grand Lagoon in Forest Park on a freakishly warm winter day. The area is so big you can't cover it all in a photo except with an aerial shot (like this). We earthbound photographers have to go for details.                                         

Hey, Salman Rushdie is in town. Opera Theatre of Saint Louis is doing a stage version of Shalimar The Clown this spring. He will be speaking about it this afternoon and we have tickets. I'm a big Rushdie fan and I think I've read all his novels, currently on his most recent, Two Years Eight Months and Twenty Eight Days (which is to say, a thousand and one nights). Hope they allow photographs.

It was good to see the aerial view Bob. This is obviously a well used area, good to see! Enjoy Rushdie, hope we get to see more!

I have read a couple of his novels, he is a great author. Freakishly warm winter day sounds like fun as it is snowing outside my window!

The park is a great place to unwind.

Definitely a good place to get out and enjoy at this time of year, Bob.

That young man in the top photo looks like Leonardo DiCaprio. Are you sure that wasn't a celebrity sighting?
