    If you're ever in St. Louis it's hard to miss Eero Saarinen's wonderful Gateway Arch. You can go inside and to the top of it, too. That was my vantage point for this photo. (However, if you are claustrophobic you may want to think twice about going up, since the little elevators that transport you up and down are quite small and,...well,...claustrophobic.)

    The circular feature in the lower center-left is the new visitor center for the Gateway Arch. (I think it had been opened less than a year before I took this picture.)

    Brilliant. Billy Connolly went up there when he was doing his Blues series across the US. There's no way I would go inside it.

    Something about it reminds me of The Day The Earth Stood Still, original version.
