On Monday afternoon there was a protest as part of the “Nationwide Red Light Camera Protest” on Valentine’s Day at Southwest Trafficway and 39th Street in Kansas City, in protest of the city’s traffic cameras installed at that location and several others throughout the city.

Inside The Link in February

I returned again to The Link skywalk over Pershing and Main at Crown Center on Saturday evening for more photos. I collected five total I want to post, this one being the first. Two were with my standard wide angle lens, as this photo above is, and three more were taken with my fisheye lens. Both work great inside a skywalk looking from inside out.

Garment District Architecture

At 8th and Broadway in downtown KC lies the old “Garment District” area. I’ve always really liked coming back to this area every now and then for further photos. Here we have the entryway area for the building on the southeast corner of 8th and Broadway – It’s the type of thing you’d never notice taking in the area from behind a windshield like most do.

I would have gone wider on this shot but accidentally left my zoom ring at 18mm instead of the minimum focal length of 16 mm I would have preferred.

Part of Downtown Kansas City Missouri.

Last Friday evening during the blizzard recovery I was wanting some skyline shots with the snow. After trudging through the mess that was Liberty Memorial I realized that vantage point would be impossible, so I went near part of the Federal Reserve driveway and went wild with the telephoto. From left to right is the Liberty Memorial, the old Power and Light Building, and the One Kansas City Place building.

The old Garment District in downtown Kansas City, MIssouri - February 2011

On Saturday evening over by the Red Dragon Chinese Restaurant in the old Garment District around 8th and Broadway. I was right by the remainder of the Folger’s Coffee Plant in taking this shot. It’s the frigidness we’re stuck in until about tomorrow as over the next several days it’s supposed to warm up and melt off a lot of the blizzard from last week.
