Today we walked round the centre of Pittsburg and viewed lots of skyscrapers.
But first some very unusual magnolias. These are two sculptures but surrounded by real magnolia grandifloras!
Some of the flowers.
And a skyscraper close by.
And another joyous one. Plain base blossoming out into Venetian palaces and French chateaus at the top.
This is PPG Plaza surrounded by building in plate glass. Well naturally. PPG = Pittsburg Plate Glass.
And lastly a Heinz dinosaur. Heinz is a local firm!
The rest of the day was spent flying to Madison by way of Chicago.
I can almost see that first skyscraper as a weave structure - basket weave interspersed with a rib weave...ReplyDelete
