Colonnade and Snow

 The snow didn't amount to much Wednesday night... but I headed up to the Colonnade during the "storm" anyway.   This was at about 8pm.

Green Grass/Blue Grass

 Saturday  night at the Colonnade was the first in a series of Summer Concerts presented by Northeast Arts.   The inaugural group was Phantoms of the Opry... playing a mix of country and blue grass.    There's a sample of their music at the end of this post.

 Every now and then I have a very nice friend who will let me take his or her picture.   This time it's a her (yeah, like I had to tell you) and it's Leslie.   Local newspaper editor(The Northeast News), Salsa Dancer Extraordinaire... and terrific person to be around.     She was game to let me try different lighting set-ups and different camera files so I could tweak my work flow.
 All shots are taken with the Nikon D800.  Studio shots ISO 100, F16-22, Nikon 105mm macro.  Outdoor, ISO 400, F5.6, Nikon 70-200mm lens.   Locations, studio, back yard, and the Colonnade over here in Northeast.

 I love the eyes in this one.  Single pan reflector around a bare tube head covered with translucent rip-stop nylon held in place by gravity and electrical tape...  high class operation over here.

 Outdoor shots available light with no fill.
 I hope to trick her into doing this again in the future.    She's also an excellent videographer in her own right and takes all the pictures for the paper....

Ride began at the Colonnade her in Northeast, went up and down Gladstone Boulevard and then by the Reservoir, along Cliff Drive and ended at the Kansas City Museum with a picnic.
