Change of scene. There is a Facebook-based group here (with similar ones in other cities) called Photo Flood St. Louis. It is led by two excellent local photographers who will pick a neighborhood, gather all interested camera buffs and flood the area with shutter clicks.
I don't get out with them much but I did yesterday. The flood was in what we call the Bevo area on the city's south side. The center is what locals call the Bevo Mill, now marketed as Das Bevo. It was founded in 1917 by Augustus Busch, Sr., the old man of Anheuser-Busch, as a way station between his country estate and the huge brewery closer to the city center. In recent years it became a German restaurant, was closed for a time and then extensively restored as an event space and biergarten.
More around the neighborhood in coming days.
