I hopped around the Crossroads yesterday evening on First Friday with a friend who encouraged me to go do something. I used three lenses, the fisheye, my wide angle, and my telephoto for these 21 shots affixed to my Canon 5D MK II – August 5, 2011. The somewhat unexpected below-100 degree weather made the evening more bearable for everyone.
A view from around 18th and Wyandotte near the Arts Incubator in the Crossroads District back on June’s First Friday, 6/03/11. There were a couple dancers performing in the street and traffic was running pretty slow through this crowd. I kind of think they should consider closing off that block at 18th between Baltimore and Wyandotte during First Fridays in the warm weather months.
It’s a good idea right now for me to collect some images of events and city scenes around KC for eventual stock licensing use, so I did a few shots at First Friday in Kansas City’s Crossroads District, evening of Fri. June 3, 2011.
Another photo from Thursday evening when I was running around playing with my new Canon 5D Mark II. I figured I might as well end it with another Kauffman Center shot.
Photo taken Tuesday evening, Sept. 7, 2010 a little after 8 pm. About three weeks ago I went to the south end of the Convention Center Ballroom and took this photo of the Kauffman Center construction, and noticed then a view toward Crown Center would be interesting too with the lighting at dusk, and my telephoto lens pointed toward Crown Center instead of my wide angle lens for the Kauffman Center. And speaking of the Kauffman Center, I did end up taking another shot of it as well that I’ll probably post in a day or two.
