“A Wicked Little Town”

I had reasons to be at 18th and Jefferson Monday night for photos, but those plans didn't work right so instead I went beyond the open fence on the open plot of land where the "L-Shaped house" used to sit and did a couple shots with the trees…

Old San Juan Streetscape, Puerto Rico

A street scene looking west after sunset in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, back on March 21.

US Airways Morning Flight

Photo looking out the window of a 6:50 am US Airways flight to Philadelphia taking off Sunday morning a week ago out of Kansas City International, somewhere over the rural Missouri area outside the KC metro, flying toward the sunrise. There'd…

West Bottoms, Kansas City, March 26

On a drive-around/walk-around photo tour yesterday with a friend we stopped in the West Bottoms. I had fun spending a couple minutes getting shots of the available geometric angles the elevated protruding part of the building here shows…

Old San Juan Rockface

A walk around the wall of Old San Juan reveals this rockface that fronts the bay and weaves around to view the Atlantic Ocean. On a warm sunny afternoon like it was it's a great place to watch the waves come in and hit the rocks on shore…

The Link Skywalk in February Pt. 4

A couple weekends ago I spent some time at sunset inside The Link for the second time this year getting sunset shots looking outward from the edifice toward the streets. In this, Union Station is at left with Crown Center at the right. Kansas…

Union Station and Liberty Memorial in One Shot

This is the third of my five shots from The Link last Saturday near Union Station at Crown Center. With this fisheye lens angle through the windows we can see both Union Station at the right, some flags, and Liberty Memorial up the hill,…

Union Station at Sunset from The Link

I returned again to The Link skywalk over Pershing and Main at Crown Center on Saturday evening for more photos. I collected five total I want to post, this one being the first. Two were with my standard wide angle lens, as this photo above…

Tilted and Colorful Downtown KCMO

This was one of my three photos I came away with (Saturday's post being another) from my time over near the Federal Reserve building with my telephoto lens trying to capture both parts of the Liberty Memorial grounds along with the skyline…

Photo Show Put Off One Week

Photo is from something I was gathering a week or two back in some work detailing the Kauffman Center construction. Due to someone's scheduling foul-up the photo show I've been posting about is put back to Friday, December 10 instead…

Kauffman Center at Sunset

The caption is right. That's how I live life.

Elmwood Cemetery

Here we have the sun going down from Elmwood Cemetery on Truman Road, KCMO, Saturday 11/6. On Saturday I took a few shots here and then later after dark, photos from inside a downtown skywalk, which I'll be posting over the course of Monday…

Sunset Part 2

One more shot from the top of the City Hall parking garage looking west right after sunset. It was good and colorful last Saturday evening when I took this. Unfortunately so much of the urban parts of Kansas City have been gobbled up by…

KCMO at Sunset

On Saturday evening I went to the top of the City Hall garage trying for a couple shots of the skyline as the sun went down.

Garment District Architecture

On Saturday night/Sunday morning I was moving about already with my fisheye lens affixed after taking yesterday's fountain photo, and thought this ornate entryway on 9th Street in the Garment District area was begging to also be shown…

Kauffman Center at Sunrise

Here we have a look at the Kauffman Center construction site at sunrise on the morning of Wednesday, October 6th. I was mostly hoping for a shot like this, except when I got to the site at Summit Street in the West Side I couldn't help…

Crown Center and Liberty Memorial

While gathering yet more shots of the Kauffman Center construction, I turned my telephoto lens a bit to the southwest while standing on McGee at sunset on Wednesday October 6th. This is a shot of the Assurant Building, the Westin Crown Center…

A new camera is a good excuse

I ordered a new Canon 5D Mark II so I could retire my old workhorse original version 5D to a leisurely life serving as a backup or secondary camera body when I need to use a couple different types of lenses at the same time. So seeing as…

A Feedlot in Stafford County, Kansas

Monday, Aug. 23 at nightfall on my aunt and uncle's farm out in southern Kansas, Stafford County to be precise. This is in the feedlot area with the moon coming up on the horizon. Back in April, hours before BP's Deepwater Horizon oil rig…

Pastures outside of Preston, Kansas

Photo taken this past Sunday evening. I see here in August the moon rises at just the right time for a certain dramatic effect. I was in Preston, Kansas, a tiny, and regrettably foundering town of which I have some ties to. I stop there…

Stafford Train Depot

The old unused train station/depot in Stafford Kansas, this past Saturday evening, 08/21/10. Maybe old unused depots are cliche subject matter, but whatever. This one has the red glow of the exit sign inside showing through the windows.…
