On Monday Sept. 20 I went on a tour of the Kauffman Center’s interior with a group from Hallmark. Since there were a number of useful photos resulting, I might stagger this across two or three posts total – so here’s Part One.
The fountain on the south end of Liberty Memorial right by the entrance to the World War I Museum. Actually I had wanted to go to the top of the memorial for skyline photos but was unaware that it’s closed on Monday, so I decided the best I’d do for the day is a fountain/sunshine photo.
Sunday evening the Kauffman Center held its One Year To Go concert event with singer Chaka Khan at the Power and Light District. The Kauffman Center was nice enough to allow me media access for some shots, as they used a couple images last night that I’ve taken of the new building under construction – one for the electronic vertical panels at the back, and another to make two 18 feet high banners depicting the skeletal pieces of the building’s south side.
I went out Saturday morning to get some shots of the American Royal Parade. These are from Grand Avenue between Crown Center and Truman Road.
I especially liked the Gates Barbecue showing – the truck behind this car here was playing one of Tech N9ne’s new songs from the Gates Mixed Plate album.
Something else from Sunday morning. Here I was kneeling next to my car on Baltimore in downtown KCMO, which spooked one of the City Center Square building’s security guards initially – crouching alongside a parked car in the very early morning.
