Like a lot of boys young and old, I'm fascinated by construction machinery and usually try to get a shot when I discover one. This Rudd Excavator was parked up the road from my neighborhood this past August. See my June post on the Komatsu excavator!

Barrel of Monkeys

From the Missouri History Museum's current exhibition, Toys of the '50s, '60s, and '70s, this Barrel of Monkeys set piece took on an apocalyptic 12 Monkeys tone through one of the filters on my phone camera apropos of the recent presidential election upset. May all be well.

This random shot for the Spies, Traitors, and Saboteurs exhibit at the Missouri History Museum has taken on new meaning for me lately, requiring no explanation considering the current political climate. Be civil to one another and remember that just because there's a circus going on doesn't mean you need to join in.

Little Black Dress No.2

Another taken visiting the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park, where my family was attending the Little Black Dress exhibit for Mother's Day.  As I said in my last post, the spectral essence affected by multiple glass cases and overhead lighting was a gift, further revealing the feminine elegance of the exhibit upon review.

The photo of the Spirit of St. Louis replica featured in my last post was taken visiting the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park, where my family was attending the Little Black Dress exhibit with my mother and sister for Mother's Day. I must say it was surprisingly interesting and elegantly assembled, so much so that I had to snap a few pictures. The multiple glass cases and overhead lighting granted some spectral essence that pleased me upon review.

Spirit of St. Louis


Another attraction I love in St. Louis Forest Park is the Missouri History Museum, within the main hall of which a replica of the Spirit of St. Louis hangs. The airplane was piloted by Charles Lindbergh from New York to Paris in 1927- a trio that took over 33 hours! Click on the photo above for a closer view. See my August post on Forest Park!
