Went on a photo shoot today!

The Boulevard Brewery in Kansas City, Missouri.  I walked in there and the first thing I noticed was that everyone was smiling.  These were not put on smiles... people, walking by themselves would walk around the corner not knowing I was there... smiling.  This was one place that the employees genuinly appeared to enjoy working there!  What ever they are doing as a company must be working for the employees!


Went for a walk...

I drove downtown yesterday, and went for a little walk around downtown Kansas City.  I found it interesting, like so many downtown areas... there were old, run down shells of buildings.  Buildings that years ago were filled with apartments, businesses, people.  Now they stand waiting for something.  But I also noted that there was construction going on around them.  I saw streets steady with traffic.  I saw people walking in and out of apartment buildings.  I know that Detroit is in the news lately about the decay of its Urban Core.  I just hope Kansas City, Missouri gets a hand on its core... because like all of decay... Urban Decay can spread.

Snow Birds

Well, I was able to make it out to one of the local open ponds.  It is about the only open water around here, as they have a bubble system in it.  The geese were managing to keep the perimeter of the ice filled with their numbers.

More Snow

They are predicting 4 to 8 inches of snow from this afternoon into tonight.  I happen to be off tomorrow... first off that is a good but of luck, and second I hope to get out and take some night shots of the snow.

Snow day!

Well, going out in the -10 wind chill this morning to try to get some great morning snow shots!  Last night was fun.  Talked to a couple of people out and about.  Kind of interesting that the only people out on foot last night were photogs.

I was driving down the road through The Country Club Plaza, and saw this white German Shepherd on top of a large snow pile.  I could not see his owner on the other side, so it was an interesting site driving toward this LARGE white dog.  It looked like he was perched on his lookout waiting to pounce.
