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.
Hanging around Oppenstein Park at 12th and Walnut in downtown Kansas City one evening for fisheye dusk shots. The fisheye lens seemed most suitable since there’s a lot of circularity present in the small urban park.
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
Above – at the top of a garage at 9th looking south down Central St. toward the new terminal view of the north side of the Kauffman Center with the Bartle Hall Skystation pylons.
Below – in the garage elevator bank looking through the glass with the camera and tripod viewable in the reflection at left.
For the first shot it made geometric sense to keep the camera/tripod level, while in the second photo a different angle was needed given the interior combined with a wide angle lens.
