Historic Northeast Mini-Mansions Volume 1

 I've driven or ridden past 3911 Sunrise Drive for decades and always wanted to see inside.
It's now on the market so I got my chance.   It's advantageous working with realtors :)
 This house and it's virtual twin next door west were built in 1927.   Don't know the names of the first owners but they liked quality.
 This house is rock solid and surprisingly spacious.




 Above, the tile in the front walkway was left-over bits and pieces from the construction of the roof.

 Above two, the living room.  Below, the parlor.

 Above and below the dining room.
 I think the rest of these rooms are self-explanatory.    All photos taken with the Nikon D800 on a tripod.  Nikon 14-24mm lens.  ISO 800.  F13 multiple exposures using LiveView to minimize camera shake and merged using software.  5 shots for each image.




 Below, the second floor rooms.









 Above, the garage door is on the back of the house and leads to the basement.  Plenty of room for two smaller cars.
Eric B has the listing.  See it here:   http://www.ericbsellskc.com/HEARTLAND/IDX104-4742939/MO/City/Kansas-City/Type/Single-Family/MLSNO-1781307/3911-Sunrise-Drive-Kansas-City-MO-64123/01001,852&ret=L0hFQVJUTEFORC9JRFgxMDQtNDc0MjkzOS9NTy1LUy9BZGRyZXNzLzM5MTEtc3VucmlzZS1kcml2ZStuYS9UeXBlL0FsbC9saXN0aW5ncz9TZWFyY2hPcHQ9MSZrZXlvcHQ9MSZ0aWQ9JnFzPTAmaGRyPTAxMDAxLDg1Mg==

Gardens on a Monday

Had a few minutes before visiting the Kansas City Young Matron's today so I stopped by Kauffman Gardens. Always something new. Perfect weather.
All these were taken with the Nikon D3 and 24-70mm lens, ASA200, F16, multiple shots sandwiched.


Lots of new flowers and benches in the "greenhouse"... didn't see Crazy the Cat though, hope she's alright.



The roses are already underway... about two weeks early I think.... but I'll leave that guess to the experts.

Reservoir Clouds

Snuck over to Pendleton Heights today to take some pictures by the Reservoir. The Neighborhood Association is doing a bang-up job of clearing brush from around and in the old water container. It's looking really nice. Some color and some black and white were taken as storm clouds rolled in. The last shot, admittedly, is not at the Reservoir but at North Terrace Lake.
Nikon D3, 24-70mm all shots, ASA800, multiple exposures manipulated in Photoshop and other software.

Pendleton Heights Holiday Homes Tour 2011 Part 1


The Fifth Annual Pendleton Heights Holiday Homes Tour was held Saturday and despite blustery weather hundreds of visitors viewed 6 spectacular homes. Above and below Nick Triano has converted this two-family apartment built in 1924 to a single family, three bedroom, two and one half bath home. I love the openness and the stylish decorations.






Above and below fellow photog Nicole Cawlfield's home on Garfield is quintessential arts and crafts with lots of original features including the ceiling fixture in the dining room. The home is 106 years old and has some hot lights in her studio that I covet. :)







Above and below, Stephen Rowe and Jeana Poertner call this 1902 Victorian/Craftsman home. Its first resident was David M. Jay the president of Jay and Smith Hat Company. The home has all of its natural woodwork, pocket doors, decorative fretwork and an original wooden seat built into the main staircase.



All of these pix were taken with the Nikon D3 and 14-24mm lens. Most are multiple exposures merged into one using Photoshop and other software. I think the homeowners did a great job of decorating this year....... tomorrow, the other three homes on the tour.
