St. Louis Grunge (in red)


It’s been almost a year since I posted a more neutral version of the above, so I figured I’d share this colorful edition today (and, if my computer remains unconscious, you might see a yellow version sooner than later, too). Have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. I liked the first one with it’s lovely subtle colouring and I like this more punchy one too, Robert.
    I hope your computer wakes up.
    I hope my new phone arrives soon too.
    I’m on my sister’s computer at the moment, hence I am “allowed” to press the like button. 🙂

    • Thank you, S.E! Very much!
      I hope your new phone arrives soon, too (you being without one is kinda like van Gogh finding himself with only broken brushes)! And I hope it’s even nicer than your previous one!

      • The old one still takes photos ok. It just doesn’t like wordpress much any more. The new camera has fewer megapixels but I think Nokia camera phones are pretty good so fingers crossed. And I should be able to download a wp app which will hopefully make making posts less excruciatingly slow – different operating system.
        What’s happening with your computer?

        • Oh… I see… yes, that sounds like a problem! To tell you the truth I know very little about phones (including the differences between various makes / models)… but from what I’ve seen you do with your phone I’d sure believe what you say! Seriously, you would think the Nokia people would sponsor you… send you one of the first of each new model they make! It would be very good publicity! 🙂
          Speaking of not understanding much about hardware… yeah. My computer doesn’t even want to boot-up. I mean, it is old-ish (8 years – still running Windows XP – and has a ridiculous amount of hours on it)… but…
          Yesterday I thought there was a glimmer of hope when I actually got it started – but then it got hung-up while I was trying to run some maintenance (and then wouldn’t boot-up again). *sigh* Oh, well. 😦

  2. very cool indeed – or rather, very warm according to the red glow.
    hope your computer woes end soon. made some progress on my camera – I now know where I can drop it off (at the other end of town, no less) and I will learn if my extended warranty was worth what it cost (= that my camera will be repaired at no additional cost to me).

    • Hahaha… absolutely! Thank you, P&K!
      It sure sounds like you are headed in the right direction! I know just what you mean about the extended warranty thing – I’m never quite sure what is covered (or not) under all the typical legal-speak…
      I sure hope they take care of everything for you – especially on a product that is so new yet – it really does seem like the decent thing to do! Best of luck to, P&K – you will have to keep me updated!

  3. I like this version as the red is so vibrant
    and offers an electric feel to the whole piece,
    of which is brilliant my great friend 🙂 🙂

    A visual feast indeed 🙂

    • I was hoping that the different ‘energy’ might be interesting enough to warrant posting more than one version of this…
      so your comment is particularly nice to hear!
      Thank you very much, sir!

  4. That’s a very strong Black and Red motif… I wouldn’t want it hanging on my office wall but it could be nice in the hallway to warm it up! 🙂 Hope you can boot some life into your pc over the next few days. I’m assuming you’ve done all the usual disk clean, etc.

    • THank you very much, sir! I guess that’s how I feel about this kind of color, too… kind of fun to play around with every now and then, but staring at it for too long might break something in an eyeball! 🙂
      Ugh! To tell you the truth I know NOTHING about hardware! For the longest time I couldn’t even get the silly machine to boot far-enough along to try anything. Last night I did manage to actually get my check-disk utility started, but it got hung-up again and didn’t want to boot past the start-up screen again. Yikes! I don’t know what any of this means, but it doesn’t seem like it can be good! 😦

  5. Wonderful piece. Hoping your computer woes will be over soon. I guess if the situation is prolonged, we will be getting the St. Louis Blues.

    • And thank you so much for your kind thoughts, Ms. K! I’m so happy you liked this – I wasn’t sure if it was pushing it a bit to post two different versions of the same image or not.. so that is a very nice thing to hear!
