Oppenstein Brothers Memorial Park in Downtown Kansas City

Hanging around Oppenstein Park at 12th and Walnut in downtown Kansas City one evening for fisheye dusk shots. The fisheye lens seemed most suitable since there’s a lot of circularity present in the small urban park.

Downtown Kansas City Skyline in December

Shots I took Saturday evening from an obscure hilltop near 20th and Troost looking toward the KCMO skyline using my telephoto lens, which I’ve kind of neglected using lately. 12/17/11.

West Bottoms seen from Case Park

I’m working on a photo project for the KCMO Parks Dept which entails gathering and collecting shots of KC parks and amenities, so Saturday evening I was at Case Park in Quality Hill downtown. At the end I brought out my telephoto lens and aimed it toward the West Bottoms trying to catch that tradeoff between natural light and artificial light. These two pics obviously won’t be submitted as part of my parks project but I wanted to include them in a photoblog posting nonetheless. The narrow aperture of f/18 for both pictures causes the starburst effect from the street lights as the aperture blades inside the lens refract the light onto the sensor.

From Case Park toward the West Bottoms at a focal length of 180 mm.

At the maximum 400 mm focal length on my telephoto lens toward part of the West Bottoms.
