It may have been a little rainy, bit that didn’t dampen our moods to cross off, “visit the St. Louis Arch” off our bucket lists this weekend!
This disorienting view comes from the the center most window (there is no centered window, as that is where the “keystone” to the arch sits, and must be the strongest portion of the structure.)
It’s quite a weird feeling to realize that unlike a building observation deck, there’s absolutely nothing below you.
Oh, and the ride to the top – worthy of any thrill ride I’ve ever been on…thank you Eero Saarinen!
A HUGE thanks goes out to my friends at BorrowLenses for allowing me to capture such beautiful photos with their gear.
