Downtown Kansas City Around 20th & McGee

On Sunday afternoon I went for pics as a storm blew through Kansas City - I went to the Link skywalk, also referred to as the above-street honkey tubes - at Crown Center for shots as the storm blew over. I've done pictures in this skywalk before…

Sunset In The Link Pt. 2

From my Sunday evening around sunset inside The Link tunnel between Crown Center and Union Station at Pershing and Main. This shot was rather unintentional, as after I finished taking tomorrow's photo posting, I went on my way to get situated…

2010 American Royal Parade

I went out Saturday morning to get some shots of the American Royal Parade. These are from Grand Avenue between Crown Center and Truman Road. I especially liked the Gates Barbecue showing - the truck behind this car here was playing…

Photo taken Tuesday evening, Sept. 7, 2010 a little after 8 pm. About three weeks ago I went to the south end of the Convention Center Ballroom and took this photo of the Kauffman Center construction, and noticed then a view toward Crown…
