The newly formed Northeast Kansas City Historical Society has announced its first Homes Tour to be held this Fall on October 20th. Seven homes in three neighborhoods will be open to the public. I'll have ticket prices and how to order as we get closer. In the meantime you may check in at their new website for updates. http://www.nekchs.com/
The seven homes comprise a variety of architectural styles that are the hallmark of Historic Northeast. The featured neighborhoods are Indian Mound, Scarritt Renaissance, and Pendleton Heights. The homes were built from the 1880s to the 1940s with all but one well over 100 years old.
For now consider this just a tease. I'll have more in depth on each of these houses as the tour date approaches.
All shots taken with the Nikon D800.. Seven shots each combined into one to obtain high dynamic range. ISO 400, F9-11, with the Nikon 14-24mm lens. Shot at different times of the day to provide the best light. I used the full 36 megs of the D800 by centering the house up close to minimize lens distortion and then corrected any distortion in Adobe Camera Raw...
Nice clouds today and less heat which means less haze and nice shadows. Went to the Summit Street Bridge to capture the skyline. Nikon D800 F11, ISO 100, multiple shots sandwiched (7).... slight enhancement in the blues. Nikon 14-24mm lens at 14mm.
