West Bottoms, Kansas City, March 26

On a drive-around/walk-around photo tour yesterday with a friend we stopped in the West Bottoms. I had fun spending a couple minutes getting shots of the available geometric angles the elevated protruding part of the building here shows…

Old San Juan Rockface

A walk around the wall of Old San Juan reveals this rockface that fronts the bay and weaves around to view the Atlantic Ocean. On a warm sunny afternoon like it was it's a great place to watch the waves come in and hit the rocks on shore…

Downtown Atlanta Flyover

On my ride to San Juan on Thursday the 17th I had a stopover at the Atlanta airport to connect. Here we have downtown Atlanta seen via my fisheye lens with a window seat on the left side of the Delta flight. Another fisheye out the window…

An Atlantic View at Fort San Felipe del Morro

I just got back from a few days in Puerto Rico, which I was there mainly for my great-aunt's 90th birthday surprise party. I had a couple of days to stroll around Old San Juan (it's quite a bit different than the rest of the island), so…

Counter-Protest of the Westboro Baptist Church

On Saturday night at the Midland Theatre in downtown Kansas City MO there was a pre-screening for the forthcoming film Red State. The barking loons at Topeka's Westboro Baptist Church didn't care for that too much (they don't like much of anything…

Theis Park Snow

On Sunday Feb. 27 - the day with all the snow, fog, and thunderstorms, I caught this strange snow formation at Theis Park across from the Nelson Atkins Museum along the banks of Brush Creek. Correct me if I'm wrong but in the time I spent…

Architectural Structure

Something of the Kauffman Center with my telephoto lens focusing on the cables descending from the south end of the building. I tilted to make the building look straight, which makes the traffic light off balance. Pardon a self-plug,…

Kauffman Center Construction Site

Back on Sunday February 27th at sunrise there was a good dose of fog all over the city. This is one of my Kauffman Center shots I took that morning.

Nelson Atkins Museum in Bad Weather

This was near the end of Sunday February 27, the day that started with profuse fog and ended with thunderstorms that wiped away the snow from the most recent blizzard. Shot looking from Theis Park northward with my telephoto lens as far…

‘Get Gaddafi Gone’ Continues in Kansas City

Because the world should know by now that Muammar Gaddafi is a deranged lunatic who happens to command the forces of an entire economically valuable country (Libya and oil supply fears), Libya has its fair share of upset citizenry owing to Gaddafi's…

Foggy View of the Kauffman Center Site

As you might have noticed I've accumulated a lot of Kauffman Center shots lately. What ones I post for the time being will likely focus on the exterior as I gather more over time as the building nears completion and opening in September.…

Brandmeyer Great Hall at the Kauffman Center under construction

On my visit on Tuesday March 1 to the Kauffman Center I had the chance to go around looking at different parts of the construction progress. Checking in on the grand lobby is always fun. It's to be dedicated as the Brandmeyer Great Hall. First…

Helzberg Hall Seat Installation

On Tuesday, Mar. 1 I had the chance to go back inside the Kauffman Center on a tour again. At present most of the seats have been installed in Helzberg Hall, pictured in both photos below. The seat installation in the adjacent Muriel Kauffman…

Sly James and the Kauffman Center in the same photo

I photographed a fundraiser at Meers Advertising in the Crossroads District for the Sly James campaign for mayor of KCMO. Lucky me I managed to get a photo of Sly and the Kauffman Center in the same shot, though I didn't notice it until looking…

Sunday Morning Fog

The fog Sunday morning makes it look like there's nothing behind the Kauffman Center.
