Heat Wave | Hoist That Rag

My press pass from Busch stadium.

It was intensely hot and sweltering considering the heat wave we have
experienced here in sunny St. Louis for the past eleven days.

Thanks to my assistant Jeff Curry for helping with logistics and humping the gear through the depths of Busch Stadium and all points in between. After the shoot we proceeded down to Cherokee street to dine on spicy chicken tacos under the umbrellas on the patio at one of my favorite taco stands Neveria La Vallesana.

I overheard a tour guide at the stadium explain that the way the Kentucky Bluegrass stays green is to trick it to think it's colder by watering it with 40 degree water.
If I could only do that with my own yard.

I recently got these super nice Yashica buttons from photographer
Anthony Georgis. Check out his work especially the"Blood Makes The Grass Grow" series.
I just heard from him that he was planning a 30 day roadtrip/documentary project.
If anyone is interested in being photographed you should give him a ring.

Recent shoot with Jim Cordes from The Boxing Gym in the Central West End. If you need to work on your boxing, kickboxing, judo, jiu-jitsu, muay thai, karate, kempo, mixed martial arts, wrestling, cardio boxing, or just getting in physical shape he's definitely the guy to talk to.
