Castlewood State Park
Welcome back to another Wandering Wednesday! If you checked out my vlog two weeks ago then you know I tried to answer a lot of questions that I get which is, "how do you find these locations?" I get asked a lot and I thought that would be a great VLOG idea and so I did, however it got shortened because a friend popped in and her flight got delayed so we showed her some spots here in STL. If you missed it then be sure to read on and click on the picture to check it out. I have had this concept idea about elements for some time now and recently linked up with Sabrina Ann, a St. Louis freelance model. Our first element was "Earth" so we scouted all around the Chesterfield area to Castlewood State Park.
In the early 1900's, the area that’s now Castlewood State Park was a popular retreat for partying St. Louisans. The dance clubs are gone, but the winding Meramec River and the lush valley that surrounds it remain. Our first element was "Earth" and being Castlewood is massive and provides hiking and mountain biking trails. Good fishing, broad meadows filled with wildlife, and plenty of recreational facilities make the park a favorite for people who want an adventure or just to get away. We came across scenic views, burnt trees, flowers, brick and rocks which provide great opportunities for an "Earthy" look.
Flowers, lizards, and ticks
After spending a couple hours at Castlewood Sabrina and I got super thirsty because we are silly and forgot to bring something to drink, so be sure to bring some water because hiking the deep hills and uneven trails can take a bit out of you. We decided to leave to get some water at the nearest convenient store while on our way we still kept our eyes peeled for some locations. While we drove there we had to stop by this neighborhood because it had a big lake with a giant white dogwood tree which was great for the "Earth" concept we had. Keep in mind we didn't stay long at each location because there are many other spots that could make this concept really pop so being said, we would stop, snap a few, and move on to the next when we came across a batch of those yellow spring flowers which are a good sign that spring is finally here! We stayed here for maybe thirty minutes catching different poses, body placement, and waiting for the sun to go behind a cloud at least till we found ticks on us! After shooting since 11AM we decided it was time to get something to eat, because a mans gotta eat! We both agreed on Smash Burger which is one of my favorite places to eat considering their burgers are made-to-order, never frozen and smashed to perfection.
In case you missed last weeks Wandering Wednesday...
Welcome to another Wandering Wednesday where I take you to the STL Myseum and ending the day with some air soft. I googled some things to do in St. Louis when it rains and some spot showed up called the STL Myseum which has some really unique and highly interactive exhibits like the Glo-Shapes and Alien Landscapes which looked like a good photography concept! CLICK ON THE PICTURE to check out where I ate!
I'll be there in twenty minutes..
