As my husband and I drove past A and E the other day, I noticed the cow statues and thought to myself: "Wouldn't it be cool to have your picture taken with the cows? I'll bet there are lots of places in Des Moines that would make a great backdrop for a snapshot!" Down by the river the Chinese Pagoda is a bright little flower. The Pappajohn Sculpture Garden has a wide range of art - love the horses. How about the Traveler's Umbrella? You can't exactly climb up there but a friend suggested you might be able to pose yourself at ground level so it looks like you're holding a teeny tiny bumbershoot. At the Des Moines Art Center you can actually position yourself inside a couple of the cairns (eggs). I'm sure I'm missing all kinds of nifty places. Suggestions?
