I arrived this afternoon. The water is down in the reservoir and there is a lot of color on the trees now. As I gained elevation driving out of the Black River valley, the colors increased by the mile. There has already been a killing frost. Loons and ducks are still here.
I've become interested in tiles, terra cotta, brick pattern design and other ornamentation on the brick buildings of St. Louis and have a second blog as of August 09 called St. Louis Mosaic at: email@example.com
If you are new here, you will find some tile pictures and other ornamentation from the past month, the origins of this interest.
If you are only looking for ornamentation, you might as well just go on over to St. Louis Mosaic, where I am adding new stuff all the time and bringing over copies of everything that's here as well.
