World’s Largest Skateboard in KC

Three new pics from downtown on Friday night right just as the rain started moving in.

The world’s largest skateboard is in town on Grand Avenue for the Street League Skateboarding tournament at the Sprint Center this weekend. There were more people visible in this first scene but they don’t show in the photo due to the long exposure time –

Then down to Truman and Grand, looking north back toward the downtown loop…

The following is from pointing the camera with my fisheye lens affixed toward the overpass fence glass and seeing what light from whichever directions shows up and where – looking eastward along Truman and Grand –

Gallery Update Time

The Downtown Loop After Sunset

On Monday evening while gathering a couple extra Kauffman Center shots I was lucky enough to come across something else I liked with the downtown highway loop and the bridge fencing at Grand and Truman Road. Sure it’s horrid urban planning with Interstate highways choking off huge sections of downtown, but it can make for fun photos. Also, it’s about time I update my site’s gallery with more recent stuff from this past spring and summer, some of which you may have seen photoblogged previously. Check out the May Thru July 2010 Gallery by clicking here. Also, the new set of photos is the featured gallery on my portfolio site’s homepage, so a slideshow of the 128 images can be seen just by going to http://www.ericbowersphoto.com.

2010 American Royal Parade

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.

1) At Truman Road looking south down Grand

2) One of the marching bands.

3) Ollie Gates and crew.

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.

4) Caballeros

5) John Deere tractors going up Grand Avenue
