Above – at the top of a garage at 9th looking south down Central St. toward the new terminal view of the north side of the Kauffman Center with the Bartle Hall Skystation pylons.

Below – in the garage elevator bank looking through the glass with the camera and tripod viewable in the reflection at left.

For the first shot it made geometric sense to keep the camera/tripod level, while in the second photo a different angle was needed given the interior combined with a wide angle lens.

A couple shots from Saturday afternoon at the Guadalupe Center for their weekend-long Cinco de Mayo festival. I took shots at the Sly James inauguration picnic at Starlight Theatre, so hopefully I’ll be able to post a couple of those coming soon as well.

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.
