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

Hanging with the UP in South City

It was a chilly, Fall day today. My buddy Isaac Richardson (@skiye30 on Insta) and I decided to take advantage, and go for a short stomp through several South City neighborhoods that hug the Union Pacific Railroad not far from my house.  We started in Holly Hills, headed quickly up into the Bevo Mill neighborhood, and then came back through Dutchtown. As in other areas of where buildings spring up around some manner of infrastructure, the mostly industrial-themed path we took undulated along the winding railway.

This is a route that I’ve been wanting to take for a while.  In a lot of ways, this area of the city feels a bit “lost in time”, with homes resembling some sort of Nick Cassavates’ version of working class life in the 1970’s.  Anyway, it lived up to my expectations, and walks this are excellent for me in terms of recharging the creative batteries.
