“A Wicked Little Town”

I had reasons to be at 18th and Jefferson Monday night for photos, but those plans didn’t work right so instead I went beyond the open fence on the open plot of land where the “L-Shaped house” used to sit and did a couple shots with the trees and the I-35 traffic and the skyline with the new Kauffman Center building being shown off in the distance.

My friend Tony’s Kansas City has recently taken to referring to Kansas City as a “wicked little town,” on occasion. Which I think is hilarious. So much so that I think the Convention and Visitor’s Association should be a bit riskier and  re-brand our city as a wicked little town – which could boost tourism and conventions, furthering the downtown renaissance which we could then give Tony credit for in the end.

Anyway, two pics from Monday night June 13, a wicked little town in the early summer…

US Airways Morning Flight

After Take-off

Photo looking out the window of a 6:50 am US Airways flight to Philadelphia taking off Sunday morning a week ago out of Kansas City International, somewhere over the rural Missouri area outside the KC metro, flying toward the sunrise. There’d be less fail in this photo if one of my fingers wasn’t visible in the lower right of the photo, but a fisheye lens is awfully wide.

West Bottoms, Kansas City, March 26

Kansas City's West Bottoms

On a drive-around/walk-around photo tour yesterday with a friend we stopped in the West Bottoms. I had fun spending a couple minutes getting shots of the available geometric angles the elevated protruding part of the building here shows off.

Old San Juan Rockface

A walk around the wall of Old San Juan reveals this rockface that fronts the bay and weaves around to view the Atlantic Ocean. On a warm sunny afternoon like it was it’s a great place to watch the waves come in and hit the rocks on shore at the base of Fort San Felipe del Morro in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.
