Prior to last night I had never shot a picture of The Scout in Penn Valley Park. Mostly because there are plenty of shots of it already.. But in recent weeks I had two requests for photographs of The Scout. So, I can take a hint. These were taken at various stages of sunset. The shot above was taken last the one below was taken first. All shots taken with the Nikon D850 and 28-300mm lens, ASA 64 then 160.
I sometimes leave the house with just one lens - just for fun. It is rarely the Nikon 10.5 DX Fisheye though. Went to the Concourse here in Northeast Kansas City. Built in 1907-08 and designed by architect Henry Wright - a partner of George Kessler - it graces a prominent western location on The Concourse. The fish-eye-so named for it's kind of distortion-is not terribly practical. But it is very sharp and fun to use in some circumstances. It's major distortion was corrected in Photoshop..but much remains.
Above is an image of The Colonnade not long after it was constructed ca1908. The view is west from Gladstone Boulevard.
