Sunset scene from downtown Kansas City in October 2010.

While gathering yet more shots of the Kauffman Center construction, I turned my telephoto lens a bit to the southwest while standing on McGee at sunset on Wednesday October 6th. This is a shot of the Assurant Building, the Westin Crown Center Hotel, Liberty Memorial, and One Park Place back in the distance. I’ve been using five or six manually bracketed RAW files at varying light exposures and merging to HDR with Photomatix recently for these shots with extremely gradual changes in color and tone that come about so often when you’re shooting photos right after sunset.

I wish it was an American version of Hong Kong. That is all.

Downtown Kansas City, Missouri, September 29, 2010.


A little after 4 pm on Monday, Sept. 27

The fountain on the south end of Liberty Memorial right by the entrance to the World War I Museum. Actually I had wanted to go to the top of the memorial for skyline photos but was unaware that it’s closed on Monday, so I decided the best I’d do for the day is a fountain/sunshine photo.


Chiefs Logo on the Lawn at Liberty Memorial

Football season is starting obviously, so the Kansas City Chiefs logo was painted (in a tasteful, symmetrical fashion, mind you) on the north lawn of Liberty Memorial in front of Pershing across from Union Station.
