Views of Downtown Kansas City From Inside My Car

I started noticing I have a tendency to take pictures of the outside while I’m inside things, and it’s happened with my car’s interior a couple times before, so I’ve decided to continue the theme for a bit.

Downtown scenes from inside my car… just this week I arranged for her tags to be renewed for another two years. JEALOUS?

Inside Crown Center’s Link Skywalk on a Stormy Sunday

On Sunday afternoon I went for pics as a storm blew through Kansas City – I went to the Link skywalk, also referred to as the above-street honkey tubes – at Crown Center for shots as the storm blew over. I’ve done pictures in this skywalk before but only the sections above Pershing and Main, while these shown here are more above Grand Avenue. I hope the commenters on the blog of my BFF Tony’s Kansas City like the profuse amount of camera tilting I used.

Another Look at the Kauffman Center On-Site

The remainder of my shots from my visit to the Kauffman Center site on January 28th –

Up Close On The South End of the Building

I was a little upset over my Helzberg Hall ceiling photo below as I was unable to achieve a completely perfect symmetry with the composition.

Both shots taken with my fisheye lens. It seems that’s been a popular lens for me to use lately as a lot of my recent stuff has been from using the fisheye.

The Link Skywalk in February Pt. 4

Inside The Link in February

A couple weekends ago I spent some time at sunset inside The Link for the second time this year getting sunset shots looking outward from the edifice toward the streets. In this, Union Station is at left with Crown Center at the right.

Kauffman Center Interior Construction Progress

Last Friday I had the chance again to go on-site and inside the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts for further construction and progress photography. For this post I’m showing the two venues in the building, the Muriel Kauffman Theatre and Helzberg Hall.

In the instance of both photos I stood as far to the top and center of the interiors as I could and used my fisheye lens (Canon EF 15 mm f/2.8 Fisheye) with my 5D Mark II DSLR. I used HDR/Tone mapping in the computer post-processing to even out the differing levels of exposure that were inherent in both scenes.

The Kauffman Center is scheduled to open this coming September.
