On the afternoon of Christmas Eve I snapped up some more deconstruction/demolition progress shots of the West Edge project on the Plaza. Demolition progress photos on the ill-fated West Edge project by architect Moshe Safdie, who noted he's…

Kauffman Center Exterior & Interior

For the lulz I took a round of snaps Friday afternoon at the Kauffman Center with only my fisheye lens, hoping to promulgate new things both weird and strange. Hopefully I succeeded if even just a little. …

Kauffman Center’s Progress on Brandmeyer Great Hall in Late June

On my brief visit back to the Kauffman Center this past Friday afternoon I nabbed a few new shots of Brandmeyer Great Hall. Progress is noticeable especially from a couple of months back, and it's now almost complete as the Kauffman Center officially…

Cable and Structure At The Kauffman Center

I went by the Kauffman Center again on Friday the 24th in the afternoon for a little while. One thing I haven't done before is take out my telephoto lens and point it far across the large Brandmeyer Great Hall lobby area toward the internal…

Hilltop Portrait of the West Edge

Architectural Structure

Something of the Kauffman Center with my telephoto lens focusing on the cables descending from the south end of the building. I tilted to make the building look straight, which makes the traffic light off balance. Pardon a self-plug,…

On Tuesday, Mar. 1 I had the chance to go back inside the Kauffman Center on a tour again. At present most of the seats have been installed in Helzberg Hall, pictured in both photos below. The seat installation in the adjacent Muriel Kauffman…

Kauffman Center In The Snow

It's winter and that means it's the worst time of the year in Kansas City. Nevertheless I had to get out and take a photo of the Kauffman Center with the snow. I ended up going back to a familiar spot, at the Convention Center Ballroom sculpture…

Kauffman Center at Sunset

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

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…

Kauffman Construction Again

While over on the lawn of the Convention Center Ballroom on Tuesday night getting telephoto shots of the Crossroads and Crown Center, I put on the wide angle and moved over a bit for yet another shot of the Kauffman Center construction and…

Kauffman Center near the Ballroom

Tuesday evening was a good night to get out and get some dusk pics. I had been meaning to try this angle for myself for a while after noticing some other photos taken around the south entrance to the Ballroom at the convention center. The…

Here’s an angle on the new Kauffman Center that I hadn’t tried yet, looking in a north-westerly direction toward the construction site via telephoto lens from about 25th and Troost, at one of the bridges above 71 Highway as it ingresses…
