Photo of the Day: Works of Art

I took a walk with my camera today and happened upon some interesting artwork near the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Kansas City. What do you think of it?

Project 52 Week 20: Remembering Italy

In an effort to populate my etsy site with Kansas City photographic prints, I took some photos of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception this week. It’s not quite like the cathedrals I saw a year ago in Italy, but it’s still a beautiful structure.

Project 52 Week 18: A Picture Perfect Evening

I spent some time this past week taking photos around the city. I’m adding to my portfolio so I can sell prints on etsy.com. I’m not in the business to make a profit. I am donating 100% of proceeds from these prints to the 2012 American Cancer Society Relay For Life. My goal this year is to raise $500. So if you’d like a photographic print of Kansas City, or if you’d like to help raise money for this awesome fundraiser, please check out my Etsy page. I plan to add more photos over the next several weeks.

This is one of my favorites from the week:

Project 52 Week 4: Survival of the Fittest

We passed by lots of open fields driving to Topeka, Kansas this weekend, as I’m sure you can imagine. I’d seen this silo with a tree growing out of it several times in the past, so I had big plans to stop and take photos. I finally decided to tell my husband about these plans after we got on the road. I guess he’s used to my odd photography requests by now, because he didn’t think twice about it. When we approached the silo, he graciously pulled off the highway and even trudged through a dead corn field with me. I seem to pick the coldest, windiest days to take photos, and Saturday was no exception. But I think the end result was worth it.

A tree growing out of a silo is truly a sign of survival. It’s always interesting to see where trees will grow.
