Some weeks, I don't have many photo opportunities. This week, I had SO many and so many choices to choose from. Sunday had a beautiful unexpected snow, Thursday had a gorgeous rainbow in the morning, and yesterday I got to go on one of my urban driving adventures and found lots of wonderful (yet sad) gems.
Let me start with the 'winner' of the week.
This is a former funeral home, on St. Louis Avenue that has clearly fallen into disrepair. You can see the remains of the former beauty. This is the stuff I love when I am urban photo exploring. I tried to find more at my favorite historical resources like St Louis Patina, Built St. Louis but couldn't find anything conclusive. (EDIT: St. Louis Patina has several posts on it - and in later posts, identified it.)
Close-calls - what almost made it:
You should definitely check out my photostream for more pictures from this week. There are easily 100 from this week alone. That *rarely* happens when I'm not on vacation or something like that.
