  •   danubus40 St. Louis is just super hot. We have a zoo, the Cardinals and that's about it. Try not to get shot downtown. Getting dangerous. 18h
  •   haikoodles It is not dangerous downtown @danubus40 don't listen to the media.. St. Louis has a lot to offer tourists... A lot more than the zoo and Cardinals. Historic Route 66, Ted Drewes, a ton of locally owned restaurants with delicious food, Tower Grove Park, Forest Park, the Muny, City Museum, the Art Museum, the History Museum, the Grove, Soulard, Antiques on Cherokee, killer Mexican food on Cherokee, rent a bike and ride through the neighborhoods, Italian food on the Hill, Grant's Farm... There's really nothing to do in St. Louis. 17h

mashable Many people think of the #subway as a dark & damp rat kingdom where you uncomfortably inhale musky air and get gum stuck on your shoes. Often times, the seemingly lackluster maintenance of these under- and above-ground platforms is enough to turn you away. But the 'filthy' tunnels can actually make for works of #art, producing captivating #photos of the #transportation underworld that lays beneath our city streets. And it's the perfect place to find #leadinglines, symmetry, flashing lights and more. This station in #Prague is just one of the many that make you realize the subtle beauty of public transportation.

mashable The best way to shoot in harsh mid-day light is to work with it, rather than against it. For this week's #challenge, think about what the light is doing to your subject, and use it to your advantage. #Photographer @jnsilva, who took this shot, will guest-host. "Be on the lookout for slices and patches of light that stand out," he says. Tag your photos with #MashPics, and we'll feature Silva's favorites on Mashable.
