Interlude: Walking Distance
Like most neighborhoods in St. Louis, there is a lot to photograph within a short walk of my front door. As a colonial city (that’s right, STL was founded during the time of the 13 colonies), there is more than two and a half centuries of history bottled up in this city, and that is if you are only counting since the time of French settlement. It is no wonder then that a short stroll can reveal countless insights into the idiosyncratic nature of this town’s architecture, natural landscape , and people.
It has now been a full week since our second son was born, so my wife and I thought it was high-time to get out for some fresh air and to give Ellison his first real trip outside. Granted, he did sleep through the whole thing!
My neighborhood, Holly Hills, is surrounded by a beautiful park, the city’s most-populous neighborhood, and a neighborhood drastically revitalized by a modern European immigration, so you are likely to see something entirely different, depending which way you go from my front door.
In the future, I will be doing some more interludes within “walking distance”, so stay tuned!
