Surveillance

.
I go out on a scavenger hunt for blog material most weekends. Some of my favorite haunts are the industrial barrens just north and south of the Arch. This is the end of a section of the Mississippi floodwall near the foot of Chouteau Avenue. There is a long stretch where graffiti is permitted - it's been featured on the blog before. This bit has several layers of work added over time. The astronaut has been there for a couple of years. The eyes are new.

Those eyes make a very arresting image and a great photo, Bob.

This is delightful. Glad you posted it -- and glad graffiti is permitted there.

I stumbled across your blog today and so glad I did. I really enjoy looking at your photos. I love to see things going on in a city. I live in the sticks with cows and miss living in a city. I appreciate the notes/info on each photo as well.
