Working Hard on the Kauffman Center

Kauffman Center Under Construction

Monday afternoon I was scouting good angles for some shots of the front of the Kauffman Center. I took this telephoto close-up shot around 4:15 in the afternoon (Mon. Nov. 29, 2010), but the light was so bland and uninteresting I figured the only thing I’ll be doing with the shots I did take will be some abstract black/whites, and I’ll go back around the dusk civil twilight hour again for better lighting of where I’m thinking of shooting next.

In this photo we of course have one of the members of the construction crew at the Kauffman Center, seen zoomed in at a focal length of 400 mm as I stood quite a bit away across 17th. I also cropped in tight quite a bit even after the zooming in with the lens, made possible with the very high resolution of my Canon 5D Mark II I was fortunate to acquire back in September.

REMINDER! Gallery show of my photography at The Hook Gallery in Westport this coming Friday evening. See the Facebook and Yelp pages listed for the event.

A look up at the public art installation and high-rise office buildings in Kansas City where Main and Grand Blvd intersect right where midtown ends and downtown begins.

High Contrast Fountain


A little after 4 pm on Monday, Sept. 27

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.

Union Station and Cloudiness

Cloudiness with Union Station in the Afternoon

A nice, cool September day of cloud cover and a bit of free time in the afternoon, I thought it would be fun to go grab a couple shots. For this one I actually had in mind something black/white and high contrast along with the clouds before leaving my apartment. Sometimes that’ll happen.
