Project 52 Week 22: A Dabble in Street Photography

Here are a couple of shots from the streets of the Kansas City Crossroads Arts District during First Fridays. I’ve decided it’s the best place in the city for street photography, so if I’m brave enough I’ll go back for the sole purpose of practicing this fascinating genre of photography.

Days 126-128: Cupcakes and Moms

We were excited to attend Food Truck Friday, but when we arrived at 6:30, the lines snaked all around the lot. Most vendors had already crossed the majority of the food off the list, so we decided to get in line for 3 Girls Cupcakes and get our dinner somewhere else. We finally made it to the front of the line – with only 3 cupcakes left in vanilla, vanilla – and about 100 people in line behind us. It was a fun experience, but I’m not sure it was worth 40 minutes in line and the $3 spent for a plain vanilla cupcake. We spent the rest of the weekend hanging out in Southeast Kansas with Jerod’s family, then we met my family for lunch on Sunday for Mother’s Day.

Food Truck Friday was definitely a success!
