Photo of the Day: Iconic Urban Building

This is a photo I took several months ago and never posted, but I’m gearing up to re-open my Etsy shop to sell Kansas City photographic prints as a fundraiser, so I thought I’d share it with you today. Several of my prints are already for sale; the rest should be ready tomorrow! 100% of proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society Relay For Life.

Day 363: One Fine Day

This year may have rang in with a very harsh winter, but it’s finishing out with surprisingly mild weather. Yesterday was another 50 degree day, so I went on my own personal photo walk over lunch. Like most photographers, I try to avoid shooting during the harsh midday light, but I came back with several photos I was happy with. This one was my favorite, because I haven’t posted anything quite like this before.

If you look closely at something as ordinary as an old building, you can find beauty. I love the textures of the bricks, vines, and door.

Day 241: Reflections

I love this time of year when it starts to cool off, especially when I get the chance to go outside during the work day. Jerod and I met for lunch at a downtown park yesterday, and this building was part of our view.
