My wife and I usually drive to Indy for the Brickyard 400 each year. We almost always stop in St. Louis. We usually take what we like to call "Our pilgrimage to the Holy Land of Budweiser". First shot is Bevo the Fox, from a product Anheuser-Busch made during Prohibition. The second is the Devo packing house, showing Bevo pm the corner. This part of the brewery tour is where you see cans and bottles going down the assembly line and is the next to thelast stop. From here you go to the hospitality room for the free samples. WooHoo!!

I wonder what he's drinking?

Thanks for sharing.

In the second shot, I see a statue on the two visible corners of the building. Are they the same and are there two more on the back side?

I like your second shot because of the oblique view. There have been several straight-on shots posted in this challenge and they don't show the perspective or depth that an oblique shot shows.

Good work.

I think there are only the two Bevo's shown and they are the same. The other two corners of the building aren't really visbile from where you are allowed to walk during the tour.

What isn't clear in the first photo is the chicken or turkey leg he is holding in his left hand/paw.

As far as his drink... why it must be Budweiser, right? :G

I really wish these photos would have had a clear day. I think a blue sky would have really improved these. But God gave me a grey, cloudy sky that day.

Most interesting. The angle of the shot definitely brings out hidden features.
