That's All Folks!


Bob and Carolyn Crowe and I started out yesterday morning bright and early with the best of intentions. We were headed to the Barber  Motor Sports Park for the Color Run.  Bob had photographed this fun run in St. Louis just a few weeks ago and we were all pumped for a great day.  Bumper to bumper traffic on the interstate plus POURING rain did not deter us.  We drove in and parked in a grassy field that we knew would be mud shortly.  We climbed the to the street saw this below us, and I took five shots.  In order to get anywhere close would have meant a very long climb in the driving rain.  When the going got tough......... well Carolyn and I turned around and headed for the car and Bob carried on. He got some terrific shots and you can see them HERE on St. Louis Daily Photo.  This is my meager offering.

From Bob's page, it looks like people put colors all over themselves. How does that work?

Just red about it. Seems that the rain added a whole new dimension... or two.

Red... Read... get it?

Earl, there are stations along the way where people have a colored powder in squeeze bottles and they spray the runners. By the time they have completed the run, they have 5 colors! The rain made for an interesting experience.!!!!

It's a very peculiar idea, Virginia!
