No Swimming Or Wading

      "Nice" weather prompted a trek to Kaw Point.  Icy, cold, and gray: perfect for black and white.

A Walk In The Mist

Impossible to not take photos in the fog... opportunity doesn't arrive that often.  These shots were
                        taken in Kessler Park and on the Concourse and in the Colonnade.  
All shots taken with the Nikon D850 and Nikkor 28-300mm lens.  ASA 500.

Union Cemetery

Union Cemetery is the oldest public burial site in Kansas City created in 1857.  It's called "Union" because it was a joint project of the Town of Kansas and West Port.  Landlocked now it is surrounded by the upscale development of Union Hill.  McCoy, Alexander, George Caleb Bingham, McGee, Smart...all famous Kansas City names and are buried here.
Above the view looking Northwest toward Liberty Memorial. 

 "Cindarella" is the name on this marker.   Very close to the fairy tale name.  But spelled differently.

                               Above, currently under construction, more apartments/townhomes.

                             The tower of Our Lady of Sorrows off to the right in the background. It stands next to Hallmark.

                                                      Frank, above, was "murdered."

                                            Mamee was all by herself off in the northern section.

                                               Above, Revolutionary War participant's stone.
   As one would expect there are many, many children's graves.  Life was very unpredictable.  I think these are the saddest of sights in a cemetery.

                         Four mausoleums are in Union three occupied and one with space available.
 Below, space available...
