Magnolias

 These blossoms are on the grounds of the Kansas City Museum on Gladstone Boulevard and in the                      
                                     yard of the 1902 Steven's House right across the street.

Monuments

Dedicated in 1877 Mount Saint Marys' Cemetery is the final resting place for many of Kansas City's founders.  St. Francis Regis was the first Catholic Church in Kansas City, located near where the present day Cathedral stands.  Those interned in it's graveyard were moved to MSM after it's dedicated.  The shot above I call Monuments as it incorporates man's tributes to both the quick and the dead. 


I want to thank Father Joseph Totton for telling me about this photo opportunity!!!!!

Bald Eagle Along The Kaw

 Went down to the river today... the junction of the Missouri and the Kaw to photograph the ice floating by.  Happened upon what I at first thought was a large hawk... turned out to be a juvenile Bald Eagle.. It had just caught something, couldn't tell what, and was enjoying a leisurely early dinner.
