Photo plans involving some others on Saturday evening got changed, so I wound up taking pics of this little Twentieth Century urban modernist remnant from hell, along Central Street downtown between 14th and 16th Streets. I used my wide angle Canon 16-35 L II for the highway/convention center shots and my telephoto 100-400 L for the shot of the exterior of Kauffman Center’s Helzberg Hall.
Last Friday evening during the blizzard recovery I was wanting some skyline shots with the snow. After trudging through the mess that was Liberty Memorial I realized that vantage point would be impossible, so I went near part of the Federal Reserve driveway and went wild with the telephoto. From left to right is the Liberty Memorial, the old Power and Light Building, and the One Kansas City Place building.
On Saturday evening over by the Red Dragon Chinese Restaurant in the old Garment District around 8th and Broadway. I was right by the remainder of the Folger’s Coffee Plant in taking this shot. It’s the frigidness we’re stuck in until about tomorrow as over the next several days it’s supposed to warm up and melt off a lot of the blizzard from last week.
On Monday evening while gathering a couple extra Kauffman Center shots I was lucky enough to come across something else I liked with the downtown highway loop and the bridge fencing at Grand and Truman Road. Sure it’s horrid urban planning with Interstate highways choking off huge sections of downtown, but it can make for fun photos. Also, it’s about time I update my site’s gallery with more recent stuff from this past spring and summer, some of which you may have seen photoblogged previously. Check out the May Thru July 2010 Gallery by clicking here. Also, the new set of photos is the featured gallery on my portfolio site’s homepage, so a slideshow of the 128 images can be seen just by going to https://www.ericbowersphoto.com.
