Уже несколько лет делаю фотографии о Сент-Луисе. Многие считают , что здесь
нечего смотреть и некуда пойти. Своей заметкой и фотографиями я хочу
показать, что это не так. В Сент- Луисе все время проводится много
выставок и мероприятий. Здесь очень много достопримечательностей не только
национального, но мирового значения. Очень много известных деятелей во
многих областях родились и работали в Сент-Луисе. В моей галлереи есть
альбомы посвященные зоопарку, ботаническому саду, музею исскуств, выставкам
и просто видам природы и города в разное время года.

Если у кого-то есть замечания и предложения по фотографиям , я с удовольствием их прочитаю.

Сент- Луис крупный промышленный, научный и культурный центр. Я постарался
привести некоторые факты, найденные в интернете, которые показывают , что
Сент-Луис имеет много предприятий и учреждений не только национального , но
и мирового значения. Кстати, о самом большом в мире собрании мозаики в
Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis ,я узнал от эскурсовода, когда с женой были
во Франции. Так что, если кто не видел рекомендую посмотреть это
уникальное зрелище, такого нет даже в Италии.
