The Bottoms Of West

 A few images from KC's iconic West Bottoms.  It's slowly being renovated one building at a time, but some of these rough edges are still capture worthy.

West Bottoms, May 12th

 Love the West Bottoms.  It's hard to spoil decay.  Many textures and surprises.  Cloudy mostly.  
 All shots taken with the Nikon D800  (which is the most amazing camera I've ever owned) with either the 24-70mm or 14-24mm lens.   Exposures mostly ISO 100.  F5.6 for the most part.

Amber in Autumn

Tis' the season for Senior Pictures and Lee's Summit's finest visited on Sunday. Amber is in her senior year and we did studio shots and then traveled down to one of my favorite spots... the West Bottoms... for some location work. She's wants to be a Registered Nurse and is already taking a course to that end.
These are just a few of the 88 shots she has to choose from.

Amber also dances and has entered several pageants.... winning Miss Photogenic in her last outing.... she's fun and a very good sport to sit on the ground :)
Studio shots were taken with the Nikon D3 and the 1o5mm... my favorite portrait lens... location shots were with the same camera and some with the 24-50mm lens, but most with the 70-200mm lens wide open at 2.8. ASA 200 on all shots.

Bridge(s) Over The River Kaw

On the west side of the West Bottoms next to the Kaw are a series of bridges for foot, biking, train and auto traffic. I've used the foot bridge many times both on foot and on bike... You can bike safely from my house in Northeast KC along Cliff Drive, through the City Market, down to the West Bottoms and over the Kaw to Strawberry Hill. It's a great ride...
Train bridge above... a lot of private boating on the Kaw below.

Lots of triangles in construction.... makes for nice photographs too.
Above... standing on the pedestrian bridge looking at the Lewis and Clark Bridge (green) and the railroad bridge beyond.

Above... the gates on the pedestrian walkway are rarely closed... but are very interesting...
Above... bike path through a cathedral.... looking east....
