There is a rock quarry in Kirkwood Missouri known as Meramec Highlands Quarry Dee Koestering Park. It was a working quarry over 100 years ago. The 9.5 acre site is a nature park with walking trails located at 1703 Marshall Road in Kirkwood Missouri.
The Meramec Highlands cottages and resort as well as ballast for the streetcar track beds were built from the rock quarried from this site.
This quarry is located about one-fourth a mile east of Meramec Station on the St. Louis and San Francisco railroad line (that is now converted into a home). The stone in the upper portion of the face is very flinty and was used as gravel stone. The beds in the lower portion of the quarry were at one time channeled into large blocks. The stone is fossil filled limestone sediment of an ancient ocean bead. There are still many large quarry stones left on the site and a small creek which runs through the park. On my walks through this park I have seen both adult and juvenile blue tail skinks and lots of hummingbirds feeding on wild flowers.
Here is the location on the Meramec Highlands
Mysterious apparitions and other inexplicable phenomena on film, or generally speaking, for that matter, are as highly debated topics today as they were many decades ago. In 1934, a certain Mr. C.P. MacCarthy of 15 Wilkinson Street, Sheffield held a lecture at 76 Clarkehouse Road located in the same city to "demonstrate under test conditions Fake Psychic Photography" before an invited committee. MacCarthy's demonstration was accompanied by a series of photographs titled "Psychic Photography From a New Angle."
A UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site, Ha Long Bay ranks as one of the world's most spectacular natural sights. Local lore states that it was created in ancient Vietnam by a great dragon that rained fire and giant emeralds to invading troops. Here, antiox shares an anecdote from his trip there last year.
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.
Jungle, home, haven. The same words may apply to both city and nature. Though different they are linked. The city takes after the colors of flowers and animals; people mold their neighborhoods after the shapes of nature. Other similarities are accidental: the fun bit.
Ouagadougou is the capital of Burkina Faso. 1.6 million people live there when 20 years ago there were only 700,000; that is to say, the incredibly quick growth and the stunning density in this city shows today.
Armed with disposable cameras, a number of people affected by homelessness in London trooped out in the streets and captured life from their individual perspectives. That was in July; now, 13 photographs have been selected via public vote and will be featured on the upcoming calendar by Cafe Art, an initiative that "[showcases] artwork created by people affected by homelessness or are socially vulnerable."
