Extraordinary photos of St. Louis

Sometimes I feel like I've seen most of St. Louis at one time or another -- if not every square inch, then another square inch that's quite similar. I mean, the city proper is less than 67 square miles.

But yesterday I saw a link to this unusual photo project that had the participants throwing darts at a map and then visiting the actual spot where the dart landed, and taking photographs on that block. It turns out there's a lot of St. Louis I haven't seen. Streets I've never heard of -- and I thought I'd heard of them all!

Nearly all of the photos are quite riveting on their own. Take a look here: www.dartstlouis.com/.


  1. Colin (hi Colin!) -- they're amazing, aren't they? I hope someone decides to hang these in an exhibit somewhere.
