Another blog post by Deepa Mohan and Edward Crim's photo exhibit is extended!

Monday, May, 24, 2010

I ran into my friend, Deepa Mohan, in the park last Saturday, May 15. I had already spotted Sarah in the mostly bare tree on the east side of The North-South Path.

I had just found one of the owlets and then I heard a voice call my name. It took me a moment to recognize the voice's owner but it was Deepa. I let her continue the story with this post from her blog. Thanks, Deepa!

My friend Edward Crim's photo exhibit at Norton's Fine Art and Framing in Maplewood, Missouri of his Forest Park 365 project has been extended through June 12. All the details can be found here. I highly recommend this exhibit to one and all! Wendy and I attended the exhibit's opening on April 30. We had a blast meeting old friends, new friends and being surrounded by Edward's superb photography. Edward was far too kind as he paused in mid-conversation to introduce me by proclaiming that The Owl Man was in the building. A nice photo montage of the exhibit opening can be found here; see if you can find Wendy and me!

Article on the owls and me in the new (May) issue of St. Louis Magazine!

Monday, May 24, 2010

The cover story of the current issue (May 2010) of St. Louis Magazine is a fourteen page article on Forest Park. Among the sub-articles is a nearly one page article on the owls and me! It is a great piece, both wide-ranging and succient, written by the magazine's culture editor, Stefene Russell. At the top of the article is a gorgeous picture of Sarah in the 06/09 Nest Tree taken by no other than Forest Park photographer phenom Edward Crim. I am thrilled and honored that this article is out and that the owls and my work with them are portrayed so well!

The owl article is not online yet but you can get a taste of the cover story here. Once the article is online I will be sure to link to it. The cover story does a great job of displaying and explaining the amazing place that is Forest Park. My friend and fellow owl watcher Chris Gerli has his well-deserved business, City Cycling Tours, mentioned in the cover story as well. All of the photography in the cover story is by Edward Crim and it is a treat to read. I would encourage any and all to purchase this issue, which just hit the stands in the last couple of days. For those of you not in the St. Louis area, you can purchase individual issues from the magazine's online store. Thanks for reading-both this blog and the article!
