It's time to review our year's work and pick a favorite. Being greedy, I can't limit myself to just one. There could be lots more but these are my besties. People notice that I shy away from pretty pictures. There are some in my portfolio but what interests me is the ironic, the street, the theater and personalities. So...
TIE FOR FIRST PLACE
Night walk in a forest near Monteverde, Costa Rica. How the guide found this tiny lizard I cannot say. Lit by only a flashlight.
A scene from a play called Pain during the St. Louis Fringe Festival . Actually, this is my favorite but I thought it would put people off if I placed it first.
Fourth of July fireworks at the Arch.
Utter concentration while building a Lego tower. At the Magic House, our area's children's science museum.
Autumn in Forest Park. Okay, I guess this qualifies as a pretty picture.
