Here we have a couple shots from near the gates to the driveway at Liberty Memorial, a couple closer up from along the sidewalk looking toward the skyline and past the Memorial with my long telephoto lens, then off to the side where I climbed up to a spot I’ve gone to three or four times now without being told by any security staff to get down. This spot allows for a slightly atypical view than the usual scene from directly north of the Memorial base – and from here you can practically make the Kauffman Center sit right behind Union Station in the photo.
Downtown KCMO from Liberty Memorial – taken from a certain spot off to the side of the Memorial and on an elevated surface. If a security guard had seen me I probably would have been asked to get down, but luckily no one did.
Sunday night Memorial Day Weekend symphony concert at Union Station, Kansas City, Missouri. This was the tenth annual, and my sixth consecutive year getting shots if I’m counting correctly.
Three lenses used in this post, wide-angle, telephoto, and fisheye.

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…
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.
