Continuing where I stopped from this post a few days ago we have downtown KC with storms coming in on the night of May 11th. Visible from left to right are the Crown Plaza Hotel, the One Kansas City Place building, Town Pavillion, Power and Light Building, 1201 Walnut with the Stinson sign, and a sliver of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts with one of its parking garage cranes.
Last Friday evening during the blizzard recovery I was wanting some skyline shots with the snow. After trudging through the mess that was Liberty Memorial I realized that vantage point would be impossible, so I went near part of the Federal Reserve driveway and went wild with the telephoto. From left to right is the Liberty Memorial, the old Power and Light Building, and the One Kansas City Place building.
This was one of my three photos I came away with (Saturday’s post being another) from my time over near the Federal Reserve building with my telephoto lens trying to capture both parts of the Liberty Memorial grounds along with the skyline after the snowfall last week. Photo taken Friday, Feb. 4 a little after sunset.
I was intending for shots from Liberty Memorial’s overlook area of the downtown skyline, but it was closed off due to the mess the blizzard left behind. After I was leaving I looked left out my window and noticed from around in front of the driveway of the Federal Reserve building you have this view (via telephoto lens) of part of the downtown skyline.
– evening of Friday, Feb. 4, 2011 –
Like I noted on Monday, it can be fun to take pictures of outdoor things from inside something. I got the idea to take an HDR photo of something from inside my car after seeing this fun photo from Times Square. In my case it was the 12th Street Bridge in KCMO at sunrise on Saturday… rest doesn’t always come on schedule. I tried to go as wide as my wide angle lens allowed but I decided to crop off the sides and make the dash of the car level a bit, as in the original it was tilted a little by accident due to how cumbersome it was setting up a Manfrotto tripod in the backseat of a Ford Focus. The view here terminates up ahead with the One Kansas City Place skyscraper to the east in the downtown loop.
