Working Hard on the Kauffman Center

The caption is right. That's how I live life.

In my travels to the top of the City Hall garage for photography recently, this was one of the colorful sights on Saturday night - 5:30 pm Nov. 20, downtown Kansas City, MO. Reminder: Photography show at The Hook Gallery in Westport…

Nelson Atkins Fall Foliage

Photo at the Nelson Atkins Museum in Kansas City on Tuesday, Nov. 16. Two or three times I've ambled around trying to get one or two decent fall shots this year, finally settling on this one. As I've noted, I'll be having a gallery show…

Downtown Skywalk Pt. 4

Ending my set of pics I took Saturday night from the downtown skywalk. Getting situated to show angles and lines in this kind of way is one of the most fun things in photography for me. The US Bank building is through the windows at the…

From the skywalk between the Muehlebach and Marriott Hotels at 12th and Wyandotte, looking southward we have a view of the Allis Plaza park (or whatever it's called) and some reflections in the glass. I'm kind of a sucker for shots with…

Downtown Skywalk Pt. 1

I was out Saturday night and happened to have my photo gear with me. When I drove under the skywalk between the Muehlebach and Marriott Hotels, I noticed it had special lights running intermittently on the edges. Since I took a daytime photo…
