Heather's Dart

Back in September Heather decided to participate in an photography event. It is called Dart St. Louis. This is from their website:
DART St. Louis is a participatory photography challenge that started with one basic premise - that beauty can be found anywhere by those who seek it. In September 2012 over 375 creative St Louisans threw darts at a huge map of St Louis City. Over the following month, participants visited the area where their dart landed and made a photograph. The resulting collection of photographs show a snapshot of St. Louis as it is today, one random block at a time.

When Heather threw her dart it landed closest to the intersection of  Grand and Union in Forest Park. This explains why she and I have spent a bunch of time there of late.

The photos have finally been posted. (Click here to view the photos)

Enjoy.

    1. Sonja,
      When she told me about it, I thought, "Wow, what a wonderful idea." And, I still think it is.

    1. Dar,
      I not only told her, but forwarded your comment to her. Maybe if she hears it often enough she'll believe it. She can be a wee bit self-critical. Oh well.

  3. Heather:

    You have a very good photographic eye. That is a very nice project. As Sonja said, we should have something like that here.

    We have a project which showcases a low income area of Vancouver, the Downtown East-Side. Link here:

  4. Such a neat idea. And all those cool photographs too.

    Please let Heather know her pictures are beautiful, but I am sure you've told her that before.

    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Yes, I've told her, but she says I'm demented and can't be trusted :-) Oh well. Maybe if she hears it enough from others besides me she'll get it. One can hope. Thanks for being one of those voices.

  6. What a great idea. The organisers are right, you can see beauty almost everywhere if you look hard enough. Heather's pictures prove that.
