This weekend, The Hubs and I went down to Union Station for The Strange Folk Festival. It’s one of my favorite festivals of the year. This year, however, the festival moved from a park in a small town in Illinois to St. Louis’ Union Station! Which gave us the excuse to not only shop our favorite artisans, but to explore the station, as well. And we even came away with a couple of portraits of ourselves. And it’s rare that I let myself be caught in front of the camera. Heh. But, it gave me a chance to work in black & white. See what you think! First, the rare shot of your intrepid photographer herself.
Line The Hubs up with the camera and he doesn’t do a half-bad job, considering what he had to work with. LOL And my shot of him. Mr. Serious, himself.
I love black & whites. The Hubs says people should always be in black and white and landscapes should be in color. I think that is a little simplistic and not always correct, but it certainly applies to a mini-shoot in a vintage railway station. LOL

And be sure to find me on Facebook for behind the scenes stuff and general goofiness. I’m on Twitter, too, but be warned – I have been known to accidentally tweet-bomb during baseball season!)
