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.
Last week while nabbing some more shots looking at the Kauffman Center construction, I turned my telephoto lens briefly to see what kind of shots could be had of 71 Highway and the traffic trails. In this shot my camera shutter was open for 13 seconds.
You can see here how much acreage must be devoted to moving cars around in the downtown area, given the way the actual built-up urban environment has been allowed to nearly be eviscerated over the decades through reckless urban planning ideas centered around the ideas of tearing down the city in favor of easy, happy motoring.
