17th and Broadway Real Estate

I was out in the fog of Sunday morning getting some new shots, among them this of 17th and Broadway in the Crossroads District of KCMO just outside of the downtown loop. If not for the fog you'd see a skyline behind the Kauffman Center from…

Behind Muriel Kauffman Theatre at the Kauffman Center

I don't yet fully understand all the technologies at play inside the Kauffman Center. I've had them shown to me on a couple of occasions and I wish I could recite what and why this large edifice is hanging down from the ceiling behind the…

The Garment District, Frozen Over

On Saturday evening over by the Red Dragon Chinese Restaurant in the old Garment District around 8th and Broadway. I was right by the remainder of the Folger's Coffee Plant in taking this shot. It's the frigidness we're stuck in until about…

The Grand Lobby in the Kauffman Center – under construction
