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.

A couple more shots from my visit to the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts construction site on Tuesday –

I had the chance to go in the Kauffman Center construction site again this afternoon and nabbed this fisheye view of the point as symmetrical as I could get with my tripod. Inside the glass is the grand lobby, to be known as the Brandmeyer Great Hall.
