Hours of Idleness-A Photographer's Journey in St. Louis

A Stroll Through the Park

Posted in Uncategorized by Jason Gray on June 13, 2009


The largest urban park in St. Louis is Forest Park. It is where the World’s Fair was held in 1904, and where the city’s art museum, zoo, municipal opera, and history museum all live, among other things. In terms of scale, it is a bit more than 50% larger than NYC’s Central Park, and a bit less than 75% smaller than LA’s Griffith Park.


So, since my job is in the park, I decided to go for a stroll Wednesday after work, take some pictures and share them with you. Here goes:

All Nikon D300, with either the Tokina AT-x 80-200mm f/2.8 (Manual Focus) or the Tokina AT-x 11-16mm f/2.8 DX.



I don’t know what’s up with all of my bird shots recently…

    The last one is the best. I went here with my boyfriend,that is why it is so special enough to put it as my desktop picture. When we were there,it was sunny though. The scenery was beautiful,it was hot,I was thirsty. Haha, I even remember picking an orange flower for him. He went”aww”. Sigh,I love him.
