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.

Bank vault door still intact and impressive.  Two shots below, inside the bank vault .. movie room.
