Kansas City Board of Trade – marketplace for futures and options contracts on hard red winter wheat. Kansas City’s oldest business dating back to 1856, the KCBT exchange was acquired in December 2012 by Chicago’s CME Group for $126 million. I have worked at the KCBT for over six years, the last three on the trading floor. Trading volume on the exchange’s electronically traded platform is steadily risen year after year, siphoning away volume from the “old fashioned ” open outcry futures trading pit.

 

The KC Wheat futures and options contracts will begin open outcry trading on one of the CME’s trading floors in Chicago on July 1st, 2013 – as the last day of open outcry trading at the KCBT will be June 28.

Wornall & Meyer + South Plaza KCMO

All shots from Sunday Dec 30 in the afternoon – stopping at Wornall Baptist Church Brookside for shots of the crosses for the KCMO homicide victims this year – triple digits for 2012. There were additional crosses in memorial for the Newtown, Connecticut massacre as well.

Then after than a few shots from Loose Park looking toward the South Plaza residential buildings peeking over the trees in the Park.

Downtown KC From Liberty Memorial

Here we have a couple shots from near the gates to the driveway at Liberty Memorial, a couple closer up from along the sidewalk looking toward the skyline and past the Memorial with my long telephoto lens, then off to the side where I climbed up to a spot I’ve gone to three or four times now without being told by any security staff to get down. This spot allows for a slightly atypical view than the usual scene from directly north of the Memorial base – and from here you can practically make the Kauffman Center sit right behind Union Station in the photo.

Plaza Lights – Kansas City – Dec. 2, 2012

On Sunday December 2 I had in mind to go to the top of a garage next to Community Christian Church on the east end of the Plaza – where there is about a 20 foot open view of the Plaza looking west. I was lucky in that the sunset was all crazy that night.
