KCMO Skyline and Liberty Memorial Grounds With Snow

Kansas City MO Skyline with LIberty Memorial

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.

Sunset In The Link, Pt 3

North on Main in The Link

This is the first of the three photos I bothered editing from inside The Link on Sunday evening, and the final one I’m posting for now. The last time I had been inside The Link for photos back in October, this section where the main part of downtown is viewable was closed off due to some kind of maintenance work. I’d gotten in here this time with the intent to utilize my oft-used standard wide angle lens (Canon 16-35 L II), but ended up trying the fisheye while waiting for the lighting to get good and decided fisheye was the way to go. Magnified in real close on my monitor you can make out the “Go Chiefs” display emblazoned with an electronic Arrowhead on the front of the downtown Marriott.

KCMO at Sunset


Kansas City Skyline from City Hall Garage

On Saturday evening I went to the top of the City Hall garage trying for a couple shots of the skyline as the sun went down.

Symmetrical Skyline

Symmetrical Kansas City Skyline

Something to pass the weekend with – I took the original photo on top of Liberty Memorial on Thursday, and thought it would be fun to apply some fancy Photoshoppin’ to get a symmetrical looking  skyline photo.

Kauffman Center Rising

Kauffman Center Construction - varied exposures // f/18 // 285 mm // ISO 500

The Kauffman Center’s ongoing construction as seen from about Pershing and Broadway on July 16, 2010.

In other news I’m without my wide angle lens for the time being as it somehow mysteriously acquired a zoom ring problem, and I’ve had to ship the lens to Canon. It would be nice if I hadn’t sold the old 17-40 L f/4 when I upgraded to my currently faulty 16-35 L f/2.8.
