At The Core

Core of Discovery

Banners like these are found all around the Arch. These are on the top deck of the garage on the north end of the park grounds.

I wonder how much slogans like this mean to people. What's core got to do with discovery? No other centers of interesting stuff around town? My guess is that almost all of these marketing slogans go in one ear and out the other. There are a few exceptions. Remember IBM's from the 50's and 60's? Think.

Note the lower left of the second picture - silhouettes of people on the Metrolink platform in Eads Bridge waiting for the train.

Our St. Patrick's Day parade is today and it's a big one. I'll be there firing away. More St. Louisans losing their inhibitions. Pix starting tomorrow.

More familiar territory. I used to take the metro link quite a lot, especially to and from the airport.

Whoever's behind the campaign's playing off the Corps Of Discovery.

We had our St. Pats parade today. I was busy snapping shots.

I think these banners are designed mainly to communicate a sense of color and energy. The message is irrelevant.

I agree with you about the banners--I hardly ever notice them in Portland, and I'm downtown after work every day. Thanks for pointing out the silhouettes. They're fun!
