As usual, there were a lot of great images submitted. I looked for the shots that highlighted the theme. Among the best were these top six (in no particular order):

#50 jeroen

All of these shots are winners and it's hard to pass any of them by.

But the winner of this challenge is #18 by VisualXpressions:

And I didn't pick this image as the winner just because I'm a St. Louisan! Well, maybe a little.

    Good job Jeff, and Winston.

    You're only as good as your next photo....
    One day, I started writing, not knowing that I had chained myself for life to a noble but merciless master. When God hands you a gift, he also hands you a whip; and the whip is intended solely for self-flagellation...I'm here alone in my dark madness, all by myself with my deck of cards --- and, of course, the whip God gave me." Truman Capote
