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 and the I-35 traffic and the skyline with the new Kauffman Center building being shown off in the distance.
My friend Tony’s Kansas City has recently taken to referring to Kansas City as a “wicked little town,” on occasion. Which I think is hilarious. So much so that I think the Convention and Visitor’s Association should be a bit riskier and re-brand our city as a wicked little town – which could boost tourism and conventions, furthering the downtown renaissance which we could then give Tony credit for in the end.
Anyway, two pics from Monday night June 13, a wicked little town in the early summer…
Something from Sunday morning in downtown Kansas City. Naturally I couldn’t sleep so I went out for sunrise photos, intending for a yet a couple more Kauffman Center shots but finding so much fog that it was totally obscured from the Summit Street vantage point I had driven to. So, I had to make due and think of something, and did a bit of fog/moving traffic/long exposure stuff. This shot is altered quite a bit from the original raw file I’m including below. I took the original, tilted some, cropped to a 16×9 aspect ratio, and then commenced some touching up. Original file below –
