Travel Theme: Transportation

I couldn’t resist dragging this photo out of my albums when I saw that transportation was the theme this week at Where’s my backpack?

Recognize this car?  It the same type of car driven by the father in the movie A Christmas Story and is on display at the house which is now a tourist trap.  A great place to visit, if you have the chance, I have blogged about it before. Never heard of the movie? Check here for details and then do yourself a holiday favor and watch it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

The theme this week from WordPress is urban.  That is kind of a tough one for me, because I don’t tend to do much of this kind of photography.  This weekend, however, I was given a great opportunity to take some urban photography in my current hometown of St. Louis.  Festival of Nations is on this weekend, and it is a lot of fun.

The smaller your ride, the easier it is to find parking!

Lots of music and dancing!

Nothing says “urban” like Highland Games!

The festival runs Saturday and Sunday.  Make sure to come hungry because the food booths are varied and wonderful.
