Full Moon From Kaw Point


Noticed while driving that it was a full moon.... so rushed to Kaw Point in Kan Kan just in time to snap a few shots. Going back again tomorrow night with better gear. (AND BUG REPELLENT) Top image is a combination of 5 exposures... bottom image is just one.

What Kansas City Does Best....

It tears down its history. City Market... probably 1800s.... congratulations to whomever is responsible for this. Destruction of heritage is a noble pursuit.

Gallery Time

Kelly, The Kid, had some photographic assignments for her class to do... so while home on Easter break we headed to the Nelson Gallery of Art.... specifically the Photographic exhibits in the Bloch Building. Below is the ceiling in the garage... showing skylights.
Old and new above.... all new below..... the Bloch Buildings demands to be seen in black and white.


Despite the lack of crowds in the pictures the Gallery was full of people.... lots of little ones too.
Where 30's meets 00's....

Above the ceiling.... below, this one needed to be in color.
The Kid taking notes.... she has to write a review of the space for her Introduction to Photography Class.
Below, pondering in progress ;)

Man and photos in a photo.
Kirkwood Hall, above, Rozelle Court below.

Southern vista... we managed to dodge the rain for a few outdoor photos. Below, Butt and Bird.

The Gallery stands where the home of William Rockhill Nelson stood.... the founder of the Kansas City Star donated most of the money for the old structure... Mary Atkins provided the rest. Below... entryway lights.
$5 charge for parking in the underground garage... Museum itself is free.
Above..... leaving this post with these posts. Tomorrow we head for the West Bottoms. Just as a side note.... all these were taken with my newly repaired Nikon D200. Thank heavens it seems to be working fine. I guess we're all better after a trip to the West Coast :)
