Downtown Skyline

Downtown St. Louis as seen from the Poplar Street Bridge in May 2012

This weeks theme is Parallelism 

Also Linking to:


  1. I don't recognize that view...I don't think I have been on that road! Although we did spend a good bit of time wandering around looking for a few places in particular - like an Italian restaurant on The Hill that Dan remembered, and a garden center that has plants on the roof that the SIL remembered...

    1. Linda, the round tower use to be the headquarters of Ralston Purina and is now the Millennium Hotel. It sits across a busy and wide highway that divides it from the grounds around the Gateway Arch. However it is within walking distance of the Arch by way of a foot bridge that crosses the highway. This was taken crossing from the Illinois side of the river into the city.

  2. Oh, that is a great entry for "Parallels"! Really good shot!

  3. Verticals, horizontals and parallels all at once.

  4. That's a great pic.

    I don't think I've ever been to downtown St. Louis.

  5. The closest city to me would be Tampa, about two hours away....but I sure would like to visit to get some great shots like you have here. Wonderful architecture.

  6. I've never been, but thanks to this shot I now want to go - I've always been a fan of modern architecture precisely because of the lines and forms. This picture captures the why. Awesome contribution to this week's theme!

    Keep 'em coming :)

  7. Wow, that circular building is tall pretty cool! And then I noticed there were 2 circular buildings side by side. Never been to St. Louis.

  8. These buildings complement each other so well, don't they? Appreciate when the city architecture looks like it goes together. Good eye.


Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
