Cinco de Mayo on Cherokee Street

Since visiting Cherokee Street for the first time, I never would’ve thought that I’d be back for their biggest event of the year – Cinco de Mayo celebration! Thanks to some persuasion from Kara, I ended checking out the festivities last Saturday instead of studying for finals…and I don’t regret that decision one bit. It was lively, crowded, colorful, festive. Come walk through it with me…

Plenty of vendors & food booths were set up along the street. What a feast for the stomach and eyes:

April ’15 in Review

April has been a relatively quiet month, compared to all the activities of March. In general, my semester is wrapping up so things are winding down! But before I leave (with a bang), there’s still a slew of fun events exclusively for seniors lined up – waaay too excited to study for finals right now! I’ll try to post those updates here. For now, here’s a review of April:

The Fabulous Fox Theatre

Watched my last show at the Fox, Kinky Boots.

Spring Fever

More roommate bonding!

St. Louis Graffiti Wall

There’s always more places in this city left to be explored! Glad to cross this one off the bucketlist.

I began a new series of photography-related posts, as I’ve been getting some questions related to this topic. I’m no expert, but I am happy to share what I know.

I’d like to know if you’d want to see more photography posts and tutorials in the future? What would you like to know more about?

St. Louis Graffiti Wall

It’s been a while since I’ve ventured around St. Louis! Thankfully that was remedied last weekend when a couple of adventurous buddies and I visited a graffiti wall down by the Gateway Arch. Plenty of talented graffiti artists have made their mark (and unfortunately plenty of non-talents have too) on the mile-long flood wall by the riverfront. In fact, it’s the only legal place to graffiti in St. Louis! We didn’t walk the entire mile (2 miles?), but even then, I scored plenty of colorful photos. Anyone who likes art would appreciate this place:
