Yesterday was the St. Louis edition of the Komen Race For The Cure, the enormous effort for breast cancer research. The local newspaper's web site says there were 64,000 people but it may have been more. Olive and Market Streets became a vast river of pink, more about which tomorrow.
One of the women in the top picture, someone I have worked with for 25 years, has been through the pain and fear of breast cancer. She beat it. She has a big smile on her face here, surrounded by her family and friends.
More apologies for yesterday's lack of comments. I was shooting the race in the morning. Son Andy is in from Chicago for the weekend with his special someone. The three of us were out touring and shooting all afternoon. Early dinner and then a performance at Opera Theatre of St. Louis, Debussy's Pelleas et Mellisande. It's a long one and, um, a bit slow moving. Some wit summarized the plot as "nothing happens and then she dies." So, a very full day.
