As I mentioned in my Readers’ Workouts post on Tuesday, I took a long walk in Forest Park last weekend. St. Louis is celebrating its 250th birthday this year with programs, events, and birthday cakes! With 250 cakes scattered around the region, I knew there would be several in Forest Park, so I went on a scavenger hunt.
If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, or know me personally, you might remember that my summer job in college was in the concession stand at The Muny.
I’ve always loved the motto carved in the front of the St. Louis Art Museum. In college, I had a tee shirt that said “Dedicated to Art” on the front and “And Free to All” on the back.
This last was my favorite photo of the day. The boy was looking at the cake when I walked up and I worried that he was going to get in the way of my shot. I took the above photo of the top of the cake while I was waiting to see what he did. What he did was climb up on the wall, giving me a great scene to shoot.
