Last night at dusk I went up the hill from Ward Parkway to Rockwell Lane and Sunset Drive and used my telephoto lens to get a look at the West Edge project as it’s been for at least a couple of years now – unfinished. I thought I heard something about it again in the news again but I can’t quite remember what.

On Sunday afternoon at Mill Creek Park on the Plaza in Kansas City, a rally was organized encouraging the protesters in Syria currently being fired upon by government forces of Bashar al-Assad.

Press releases were sent to the local KC news stations, but none showed up, backing up my own ongoing question of “what exactly would ya say the news stations do?”

Philadelphia's Society Hill

Some rowhouses of Philly’s Society Hill area in and near Center City, taken on my brief trip there for a photo job at the beginning of April. Philadelphia is a city with rowhouses of varying styles everywhere it seemed.

Above: The grand lobby, to be known as the Brandmeyer Great Hall undergoing further construction on April 19, looking toward the northwest. Glass railings will take the place of the current makeshift wood railing.

Below: The under-floor heating tubes are being installed on the floor of Brandmeyer Hall.

Reminder: Photo show tonight at 7 pm at The Hook Gallery near 45th and State Line around the antique and art shops at 1711 West 45th, KCMO, immediately east of State Line. Here’s the Facebook page.

Over the Easter weekend I took some extra time off and went out to my grandma’s place in central Kansas. This shot was taken Sunday at dusk north of Stafford Kansas halfway to Ellinwood in a cluster of trees around a dirt road that I could see from the paved two-lane highway. The deer were hopping around a lot that night and I had to be careful to not total my car in the process of making it back to Stafford in the dark, as there were several deer witnessed on the side of the road. I just paid off the car too so I’m a little extra suspicious of deer right now when venturing into the country.

Don’t forget – Photo show and sale tomorrow night at The Hook at 45th and State Line in KCMO – see the Facebook page for further information.
