Hours of Idleness-A Photographer's Journey in St. Louis

St. Louis City Hall

St. Louis City Hall is one of the most beautiful and amazing city halls that I, personally, have seen.  It was built from 1898-1904 in the French Renaissance Revival Style, and closely resembles Paris’ own city hall, the Paris Hotel de Ville.  When it was first erected, St. Louis’ City Hall had several spires and a tower atop it that have since been removed, casualties of changes in local taste (or because of corroded metal structuring; this is debated).  More pics follow after the jump–>

All Nikon D300 with Nikon 50mm f/1.8E (30 year old manual focus lens!).
