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
Photographer Justin Rose, who works for the popular street photography Instagram account, Street Honey, shot some Lomography film on a recent road trip along the West Coast. Check out the results here.
Earlier this year, Lomography launched a new B&W Kino film in 35mm and 120 format. In partnership with the Penumbra Foundation, we held a workshop where participants were able to test out Lomography's new film on the streets of NYC and learn how to develop their own film. Check out more here.
We shine the spotlight on Lomographers who have been with us for the past few years. They are the community members who continue to inspire us with their distinctive visual styles. Say hello to frenchfyl, a Lomographer who hails from a small village in the South of France!
Starting this month, we would like to shine the spotlight on Lomographers who have been with us for the past few years. They are the community members who continue to inspire us with their distinctive visual styles. Today, say hello to osteologist, teacher, and photographer La Fille Renne (aka @lafilledeer).
Due to popular demand, we made some upgrades with the Berlin Kino 400 for better black-and-white results. Hear out what these artists have to say as they share their own thoughts and photographs using the new formula.
