The Gateway to the West


I had an amazing trip to St. Louis. I am particularly proud of this photograph I took of the Gateway Arch. It is definitely worth visiting. It is a fantastic monument representing the intersection of the competence of the engineer and the imagination of the architect.

Yeah it is amazing. I loved the ferris wheel lift, its really wonderful that they came up with that!

Eero Saarinen built the arch and it seems the tram wasn't included until the arch was fully built, though Eero had left enough space required since he wanted people to go to the top and see the views from there. Dick Bowser designed the Arch's tram system, it seems in 2 weeks! (All this is from my post when we travelled to St. Louis :-D).

Sigh. My camera and I still haven't figured each other out.
