Passing Storms


Stationed myself on the west side of the Kansas City Museum Sunday afternoon and set the camera to do interval shooting.  One shot every 15 seconds.  Ended up with 697 shots which I merged into one video in Final Cut Pro X.  A little over two hours are covered.  I stopped when the rain started :)   The Kansas City downtown skyline is visible in the distance.

Spring Blooms

    While waiting for the Bride and Groom to arrive I wandered the confines of Kauffman Gardens today and snapped a few shots...  good day for photography with the cloud cover and cooler temps.

Northeast Mansions Volume 10 - 335 Gladstone Boulevard

 This home was built in 1909.  Tim and Yvonne, the current owners, are doing extensive remodeling and preservation work on the structure.   The home is furnished with items they have collected during a prolonged period  in the Middle East... including time living in Turkey.
                                    The home is fully protected by an advanced alarm system.
 After they had moved in the couple had to be away for a while and during that time a pipe broke and did extensive water damage to the home.   All that has now been repaired.

 Time and Yvonne opened their home for the Scarritt Renaissance Coffee Club on Saturday where a vast repast was laid out in the dining room and guests from the Knotty Rug Company discussed exotic carpets... the care and feeding thereof.... fascinating.   Afterward Yvonne conducted a tour of the house.
