Thursday Arch Series

A rather different Thursday Arch series for you, from a different than your usual poster. This study in depth of field is also from the Saint Louis Mardi Gras parade from last Saturday. This was taken after the parade was over, and Strangetastes and I had walked quite a bit south along the parade route, and were walking back northwards. There were many, many of these carts selling beads and hats and other junk along the street, though it seemed silly to Strangetastes and me that one would want to pay through the nose for something that one could get for free (i.e., thrown beads).

I have several of these shots of the bead carts with the Arch in the background, which you can check out on Flickr, here if you are interested. So far this Flickr set selection is a bit random, as well as minimally edited, so please bear with me if you visit those pictures. Feel free to comment, though!

TOMORROW: Support Our Troops

Very colourful! Nice to see what they do in the different cities, isn't it?

Reminds me of the old tradition of market days over here. Junk, junk, junk. Everywhere you look. I always wonder who the heck buys it? And for what reason?

You do know those beads aren't REALLY free, right?

You have to flash someone to get those precious beads. :-)
