Demonstration for Egypt on Saturday

A large group of demonstrators came to the Nichols Fountain area on the Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri on Saturday afternoon at 4 PM to demonstrate against the Hosni Mubarak regime in Egypt currently being protested in various forms back in…

Norman School in KCMO School District on the market

This is the old Norman School, I assume a leftover from the Kansas City Missouri School District. The building is listed by a realtor. Whenever I'm zipping between my midtown home and downtown I often notice this building to the right as you're…

Kauffman Center In The Snow

It's winter and that means it's the worst time of the year in Kansas City. Nevertheless I had to get out and take a photo of the Kauffman Center with the snow. I ended up going back to a familiar spot, at the Convention Center Ballroom sculpture…

31st and Troost MAX Bus Public Art

A few weeks ago I spotted new public art installations at at least two locations along the new Troost MAX bus line that started running at the new year. This one, completed, is located at 31st and Troost, same site as the anticipated Troost…

West Bottoms Railroad

This is the kind of thing you could call street furniture. It makes a street more interesting and it serves a use, in this case keeping people from being ruined by passing trains. And it looks better than having nothing there at all. Two…

Twelfth Street Bridge Imposing

Last Sunday in the West Bottoms I thought it would be fun to try and see about bringing out the 12th Street Bridge meanness while a train passed beneath.

Sunset In The Link, Pt 3

This is the first of the three photos I bothered editing from inside The Link on Sunday evening, and the final one I'm posting for now. The last time I had been inside The Link for photos back in October, this section where the main part…

Sunset In The Link Pt. 2

From my Sunday evening around sunset inside The Link tunnel between Crown Center and Union Station at Pershing and Main. This shot was rather unintentional, as after I finished taking tomorrow's photo posting, I went on my way to get situated…

Snowed Over Plaza

After leaving work on the southern part of the Plaza on Monday afternoon I trudged vehicularly in the snow past the pedestrian bridge with all the national flags of Kansas City's designated sister cities. When I got home I eventually grabbed…

Sunset in The Link Pt. 1

On Sunday I had a good time in the afternoon and evening getting some new shots just for fun. I started in the West Bottoms and ended inside The Link, the windowed above-street tunnel between Union Station and Crown Center. I'm actually…

Holy Name Church Pre-Demolition

We have the Holy Name Church at 23rd and Benton Boulevard on Kansas City's east side, now facing imminent demolition with the owner of the old church building telling a judge he will indeed foot the bill for its demolition instead of the…

Plaza Lights and High Rise Residential

While getting shots Sunday evening I nabbed this view from the top of the garage on 47th looking southeast toward the Plaza Medical Building in the lower foreground and the old high-rise condo and apartment buildings along Ward Parkway…

December at the Board of Trade

While one of my coworkers at the Board of Trade neared her due date, I took a couple photos of her, highly pregnant in the staff jacket on the trading floor, and also had a bit of extra time for some random photos on the trading floor a…

Plaza Lights on 47th

Something from Sunday evening, January 2nd along 47th on the Plaza. I haven't done any Plaza lights photography this season at all, or much other photography for that matter - due to a lot of things I've been having to take care of lately.…
