On the long walk to the car after this weekend’s Kansas City Irish Fest, I grabbed my tripod for a shot of this Union Station sign. Photos of the front of Union Station are pretty common, but this angle is a bit different. If you twist my arm I may post some street photography shots of Irish Fest later this week – it’s a great place to people watch!
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:
One of my New Year’s resolutions this year is to have a weekly date night with my husband. So after excellent food and drinks at Snow & Company, I shot some night photos of the new Kansas City modern marvel: the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. It just happened to be the coldest day of the year; with the wind whipping and snow just minutes from falling.
I may not be a huge football fan, but I am proud of the Kansas City Chiefs after their Monday Night Football win against the Chargers, ranking them first in the division. I think I got that right. I guess someone (or lots of someones) was even more excited than I was – this downtown building was lit up in Chiefs colors Tuesday morning.
I traveled to Austin, Texas this week for work. I didn’t carry my camera with me everywhere, but I did manage to continue taking photos every day. We stayed right on the beautiful Lady Bird Lake. Had I hauled my DSLR camera with me on my morning run around the lake, I could have gotten lots of fabulous photos – from swarms of bats, to hundreds of runners, to a beautiful sunrise. I truly love the vibe of this city.
It rained most of the day yesterday, which resulted in a lot of puddles around the apartment. Sometimes a stream builds near our patio, but luckily we didn’t have enough rain for that.
