First Snow

Went all the way to my backyard to capture the first flakes.  Took three trips because, apparently, I've forgotten everything I ever knew about photography.

The View From Twenty-one Stories - The Old Traders National Bank Building

 Thanks to the generosity of my friend Terry Herron who lives in the building, I was able to view inside the old Traders National Bank Building which was renovated into The Grand KC Apartments.  This is not sponsored, I receive no compensation, it's a view of a restoration and of KC from 21 stories up.  Above, T-Mobile Center in the middle, Jackson County Courthouse (red) on the left.  

          The building was constructed in 1962 and, in 2015, was converted into apartments and retail. 

                                              Highest swimming pool in Kansas City. 
                                                            Power and Light District
Bank vault door still intact and impressive.  Two shots below, inside the bank vault .. movie room. 

                                             Above and below resident common areas. 

                                      Above, hallway.  Two shots below, 21st Story Lounge Area

                                      Main lobby.  This is where the escalators used to be .

Kessler Park Rainy Day

From deep in the files.  2009.  A rainy day in Kessler Park... a field right next to the Kansas City Museum.  At that time the Parks Department was letting part of the field grow wild...which I liked and everyone else didn't.  :)  There was a beautiful red fox too, but he/she was faster afoot than I was with the shutter.
