POTD - City Scapes

St Louis' City Museum is a photographer's dream or nightmare. So many cool textures, structures, artwork, tilework, sculptures and more to photograph. Here are just a small sampling of what I found interesting. I think I have another 2 dozen highly varied photos to sort through yet. If you ever get to St Louis, make sure to visit and bring your camera.

A whole wall of glass bottles adorned the entrance to the Vintage Clothing shop.

Using scrap or salvaged rebar, someone told the welder / artist to "create whatever you want".

Kids climb the metal structure to get to the slide.

Spools of thread that feed the shoelace machine. They design and sell all sorts of flat woven shoe laces, wrist bands, etc on the spot.

Hundreds of these painted ceramic balusters adorn the staircases and covers one of the slides. They spin, too.

In the dark recesses of the back part of the warehouse - staircases that lead you to the 7th floor spiral slide.

Hopefully I'll get to post more pictures over the next several days.

These are awesome and so much fun, makes me want to visit St Louis! I think my favorites are the glass bottles and the silhouette of the kids climbing. :)
