“A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered the front door, the host said ‘I love your pictures – they’re wonderful; you must have a fantastic camera.’ He said nothing until dinner was finished, then: ‘That was a wonderful dinner; you must have a terrific stove.” -Sam Haskins
I didn't know St. Louis had bears running around on the loose!
Cool pics, and yes, STL is definitely underrated.
"I am concerned about the problems of so-called unintended consequences. Who will govern Iraq when Saddam Hussein is removed and what role will the U.S. play in the ensuing civil war that could develop in that country? Will moderate governments in the region who have large Islamic fundamentalist populations be overthrown and replaced by extremists?" --Bernie Sanders to Congress, October 9, 2002
Great set from a city I'm not familiar with. Lots to keep the eye happy.

Hey, Matt. You started a fight. Unless you have comments on the pictures or some constructive criticism, don't bother posting in this thread. How you thought you'd report part of fight of which you started and come out the other side unscathed is beyond me. If you have any questions, message me.

Thanks StlGasm for posting your interesting pics of St. Louis. I've visited St. Louis a couple of times for business conferences. I enjoyed it and found it to be very convenient (rail connection from airport to downtown). I didn't get out much but I could tell from the train ride and other interactions that the city had some funkiness (a good thing) and realness about it.
Just so everyone knows, that pic of the guy with the camera is neither STLgasm or me. It's our friend who was in town from NYC doing a photojournalism project about Rust Belt cities. Thanks for the kind words everyone!
