Pershing & Main – Kansas City

I don’t know what else to call this post but one night I threw together a few new shots from in The Link above Main, then outside of Union Station with the Boat Anchor for the Titanic Exhibit – then one at the end of the Missouri Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington Square Park.

 

Fisheye lens for all of the skywalk shots –

Switch to regular wide angle lens for a couple of the front –

then back to the fisheye…

Inside Kansas City Above-Street Skywalks Pt. 1 of 2

I’ve done skywalks from the inside before but Saturday was so nice and dreary and wet that I wanted to do an impromptu round again inside them, all with my fisheye lens. I took so many for the lulz that this post consists of along Pershing and Main while another coming later in the week will be in the tubes above Grand and also Wyandotte and Central.

Inside Crown Center’s Link Skywalk on a Stormy Sunday

On Sunday afternoon I went for pics as a storm blew through Kansas City – I went to the Link skywalk, also referred to as the above-street honkey tubes – at Crown Center for shots as the storm blew over. I’ve done pictures in this skywalk before but only the sections above Pershing and Main, while these shown here are more above Grand Avenue. I hope the commenters on the blog of my BFF Tony’s Kansas City like the profuse amount of camera tilting I used.

Celebration at the Station 2011 Symphony Concert

The annual Celebration at the Station took place last night leading into Memorial Day with a concert from the Kansas City symphony at Union Station and Liberty Memorial. The warm weather brought a big turn-out. I’ve made a habit of getting new shots of this event each year for five years in a row now. Photos shown in chronological order, Sunday evening May 29 on Memorial Day weekend.

Union Station And The Link’s HVAC Reflections

Inside The Link in February

Yet another fisheye lens photo, and my fifth and final shot from my series of photos taken from inside The Link Skywalk between Union Station and Crown Center on the evening of Saturday February 12th. These kind of visually complicated things under the right lighting are pretty much my favorite things to do with photography. The ceiling and HVAC reflections in the glass wouldn’t be nearly so evident without the HDR/tone-mapped processing I applied by taking multiple exposures in-camera and blending them on my computer.
