On the Main St. MAX Bus

From the Plaza north to downtown to get my car, Saturday May 5.

Graffiti Tagged Bus Stop at 48th & Roanoke

On Monday I went out for some progress shots on the West Edge project demolition - at the end I shot this pic of a graffiti tagged bus shelter at 48th and Roanoke, Kansas City, MO.

Red Light Traffic Camera Protest in Kansas City

This Saturday 1-28-2012 a small protest took place at 39th and Southwest Trafficway in Kansas City MO. A recent study came out by the Kansas City Police Department indicating that the cameras do nothing for traffic safety except perhaps making…

West Plaza Black & White at Night

I was coming back from a local bar on foot and saw some stuff I figured I'd try getting with the ISO cranked to 4000 and the aperture wide to 3.5 or so - still having to hold still. I stopped in and grabbed my camera and put on its wide angle…

Photo Tip for TKC Commenters from 12th and Wyandotte

Lollygagging around this area the other afternoon... Protip to one or two dopes in the comments sections of my favorite Kansas City blogger Tony's Kansas City that there's no special "star filter" for when the sun shines…

Kauffman Center Exterior Close Ups

A couple more shots from my visit to the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts construction site on Tuesday - Above - looking southeast with the fisheye lens giving a view toward the Crossroads and Crown Center. Below - facing…

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…

Twelfth Street Bridge Imposing

Last Sunday in the West Bottoms I thought it would be fun to try and see about bringing out the 12th Street Bridge meanness while a train passed beneath.

December at the Board of Trade

While one of my coworkers at the Board of Trade neared her due date, I took a couple photos of her, highly pregnant in the staff jacket on the trading floor, and also had a bit of extra time for some random photos on the trading floor a…

Symmetrical Theme

A few times before I've had a good time making some symmetrical architectural doo-dads with the computer. For this one I used a photo I took a few days ago nearing the evening as workers were putting some touches on the Kauffman Center's ongoing…

Working Hard on the Kauffman Center

Monday afternoon I was scouting good angles for some shots of the front of the Kauffman Center. I took this telephoto close-up shot around 4:15 in the afternoon (Mon. Nov. 29, 2010), but the light was so bland and uninteresting I figured…

Crown Center Art Installation

A look up at the public art installation and high-rise office buildings in Kansas City where Main and Grand Blvd intersect right where midtown ends and downtown begins.

High Contrast Fountain

The fountain on the south end of Liberty Memorial right by the entrance to the World War I Museum. Actually I had wanted to go to the top of the memorial for skyline photos but was unaware that it's closed on Monday, so I decided the best…

Union Station and Cloudiness

A nice, cool September day of cloud cover and a bit of free time in the afternoon, I thought it would be fun to go grab a couple shots. For this one I actually had in mind something black/white and high contrast along with the clouds before…
