GEOMETRY LESSON

Looking down from the second floor to the ground level over the main stairway at the City Museum. It's a riot of curves, lines and colors that somehow reminds me of Frank Stella's later work. Much of the balustrade is made of industrial rollers covered in a myriad of colors and patterns. The structure in the lower left that looks like a slinky is for children to crawl through, which Ellie does with enthusiasm. No hallucinogens needed in this place.

Another very nice view of the city museum. Thumbs up for the people who thought this out.

Apparently keeping the inner child happy continues for some businesses. A local beer brewery has a one story chute for anyone to go down...it's a closed pipe of red plastic if I remember correctly. They also offer tours with some samples. I remember waaay back the Busch Gardens brewery in Tampa gave a sample and had a huge room where everyone could enjoy the air conditioning and look out windows at the animals.

Incredible. I can see that being problematic for someone with fear of heights.
