I was up on the 19th floor of the City Center Square building downtown around 5pm Wednesday (08/15/12) to get some shots at the Bratcher Gockel and Kingston law office. While there and waiting for the staff to prepare I threw on the wide angle lens in the conference room and took a few snaps out the window with its elevated view of things. One of the firm’s partners, Lynne Bratcher, took the case for my friend and favorite blogger Tony’s Kansas City (Tony Botello) in his dispute with retiring Local 42 union chief Louie Wright.
This is my second recent post playing around with the 71 Highway overpasses. Kansas City, Missouri. Most of these are with my long telephoto lens, and the last two with the wide angle and fisheye.
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.
More shots from a place I’ve stood before. At the end I scouted another skyline angle across the street I’m going to try sometime too. Downtown Kansas City, Missouri, Thursday, 07/14/11
I took these two telephoto shots the same night as the two wide-angles from my most recent prior posting. I had gone that night to 18th and Jefferson to train the telephoto lens on the Kauffman Center for a scheduled lighting pattern inside the building, but that didn’t go as planned – plus I think if I’m to ever get any decent shots of the building from that location I’m going to have to rent a lens that extends farther than the 400 mm maximum focal length on my own telephoto lens.
