Over the past ten months or so, I've had a few opportunities to make some images of Kansas City. I recently printed the photo above and really liked the way it turned out. After realizing that I hadn't yet shared all of these images, I figured this would be a good opportunity and a good place to do so. If you would like to see these images in high resolution, click here to view the gallery page. My plan is to add to this gallery as it is an ongoing project.
The photo above was shot late in the evening last June, from the top of the wall at the Liberty Memorial. The colorful lights of Union Station and the rest of the downtown area, as well as the clouds in the sky, made for a dramatic image. I also liked the black and white, also of the downtown area in the image below. This one was shot from an upper floor balcony of the Westin Crown Center.
The Liberty Memorial in Kansas City is a memorial to the fallen soldiers from World War I and houses The National World War I Museum. The clouds really made this shot. It would not have had nearly the impact if I would have had clear blue skies that day.
The shot above was taken inside Union Station on a rare occasion when there were no other people present. It was actually taken and processed with the iPhone 4S, which did a really good job considering the less than ideal lighting conditions.
The old Western Auto building located in the Crossroads District of Downtown Kansas City, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988. The building, which now serves as lofts, was originally built for the Coca-Cola Co. in 1914.
The parting shot above is of the Downtown Kansas City skyline as seen from across the Missouri River at Kaw Point. I hope you enjoy some of the sights of Kansas City. Check back often to see additions to this gallery. Thanks!
