Chalk Walk 2012

Northeast Arts once again put on Chalk Walk at Concourse Park in Historic Northeast today.  It also runs tomorrow if the weather will cooperate.   Above, the fountains are off and the chalk is going down.    Left, the Henggeler family, John Francis, Geoff, Jen, and the newest, Simon.

 Above, the newest Stalder looking suspicious....  i.e. normal.




 Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences faculty and students were on hand to take vitals.   Below, I think I'd start at the other end of the steer....

 Above, the finished product, below, chalk and plans.

 Above, kite flying demonstration had cooperation from the wind.  Below, EL Bryan notorious  famous local cartoonist with his contribution ....











 Really good weather and lots of fun.   All photos taken with the Nikon D5000 and 18-200mm lens.  ASA 400, aperture and shutter various.

The Return of Deer Head Man

Deer Head Man returned to the neighborhood Sunday just in time for egg-hunt festivities across the street from Hyper-House.
He watched the little children as they searched for the Easter treats.

He posed for pictures.
And then Deer Head Man left.

Pageantry

Sunday night my favorite face (and the rest of her) competed in the Miss United States Teen Missouri contest at the Overland Park Convention Center. Amber was one of 19 girls competing in a combined Kansas/Missouri event. Note to self: don't take a slow lens to a fast dance.
All the girls made a first impression walk at the start... wearing basic black.

One of the best pageant moments was when each girl came out in the summer ware of their choice.... this showed their own individualism... and, I'm proud to say, Amber came in first out of 19.



Evening wear is always the classiest portion of the program.




Next to last on the program the dreaded questions.... two for each contestant. Amber did just fine.

Above, Amber taking first in the individual choice portion and below winning First Runner Up in the Miss United States Teen competition.
All shots taken with the Nikon D5000 and 18-200mm lens (truly not appropriate combination for this kind of event). ASA 3200, available light only.
