Saturday afternoon a small protest was held at Mill Creek Park on the Plaza in Kansas City against the fraudulent Russian elections that took place at the end of last year. The group was also joined by some members of the Occupy Kansas City movement for the protest at the corner of 47th and JC Nichols Parkway.

The day after it snowed a little last week I went traipsing into Nichols Fountain with its absence of water in the winter to get up-close fisheye lens shots of the statues with the Plaza lit up at sunset in the background.
