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.

The 12th Street Bridge From My Back Seat

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…

Taken a few minutes after yesterday's photo, looking east kind of northeast at sunset, inside The Link skywalk between Crown Center and Union Station.

Garment District Architecture

On Saturday night/Sunday morning I was moving about already with my fisheye lens affixed after taking yesterday's fountain photo, and thought this ornate entryway on 9th Street in the Garment District area was begging to also be shown…

One of Many Fountains

At a questionable hour on Saturday night, I perched in the median with my camera and tripod rigged toward this fountain in the middle of the street, amid several of the Commerce Bank properties on Main between 8th and 9th in the north…

Tracy Ward’s Campaign

Kauffman Center at Sunrise

Here we have a look at the Kauffman Center construction site at sunrise on the morning of Wednesday, October 6th. I was mostly hoping for a shot like this, except when I got to the site at Summit Street in the West Side I couldn't help…

Jason Kander for Missouri 44th

On Thursday evening I took a few shots for Jason Kander to utilize in his campaign for re-election as State Representative for the 44th District in Missouri, which falls in the boundaries of a good section of KCMO. Jason and I were 1999…

Gallery Update Time

On Monday evening while gathering a couple extra Kauffman Center shots I was lucky enough to come across something else I liked with the downtown highway loop and the bridge fencing at Grand and Truman Road. Sure it's horrid urban planning…
