February 16th marks the end of my second year with Photo Flood St. Louis! (My how time flies...) I'm so grateful that I found this group and that I can count many of the members among my friends. I love that we all have different interests and different eyes, varying skill levels and equipment and NO EGOS. Everyone is willing to learn and to teach. And we're all around the same age, give or take.
On our most recent Flood, a group of four of us were walking around together. We all stopped around the same time and took our shot. I looked back after taking mine and just laughed. All four of us were pointing in different directions - we had all seen different things. That moment there epitomizes the group.
In the last year, I have attended 19 of the 25 Floods and Mini-Floods available which is pretty amazing considering my work schedule. I won one Flood that I almost didn't attend and I thoroughly enjoyed myself on all adventures.
I've chosen my favorite 2 (or more) from each flood from this past year:
STL250 - Biggest Birthday Ball
STL250 - Burning Love
Botanical Heights (McRee Town)
Compton Hill Water Tower
Downtown, pt 2
St. Louis Hills
World Bird Sanctuary
Tower Grove Park
Here's to many more adventures!
