East Side City Lights

This is a very old photo (an early attempt with my first digital camera). It’s a study in mistakes. Technically, it’s just… awful. Still, I kinda like it for some reason. Maybe it’s the somewhat eerie colors illuminating those wisps of smoke… maybe it just reminds me of how excited I was to be taking photos… or maybe I’ve just bounced off my head one too many times. Either way, have a great weekend, everyone!

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!

St. Louis Grunge

I made some wildly colorful versions of the above vector drawing, but… eh. You can scroll down a bit for color. Also, I took serious liberties here, including a fairly impressive civil engineering project – moving the Mississippi River – because that’s how I roll float.

Alright already, we’ll all float on…
No don’t you worry… We’ll all float on...
