    Urban Missouri west - Kansas City - broadband required

    Here's my set of pictures with kind of a Kansas City theme from the past two or three months.

    Gallivanting around downtown... or El Centro Urbano if this was indeed Sevilla...













    Nelson Atkins Museum - midtown/Plaza

















    I should have cropped this one better...





    Union Cemetery...

















    Looks like I ended up downtown again...















    At the skatepark... I was just there to take pictures, not skate. I'm not that punk rawk...







    This whole thread is completely out of chronological order somehow... anyway, this is from the Celebration at the Station concert event Memorial Day weekend in late May...



























    Union Station kept changing color ya know...

















    The cancer park on the Plaza had been renovated...



    This big Collie is named Peaches...









    Whoops, downtown yet again...



    The side of the Midland Theater...









    Crossroads Dist. First Friday in June, and thus began the month from hell...











    Now on to Loose Park...



    Odd how evolution resulted in a great species like the duck but also managed to turn out something as revolting as the tick...













    Royals baseball Kauffman Stadium, sold out on a Friday night - it was kind of a big deal...























    The tiny little antique district by State Line...







    Downtown yet again, walking around Quality Hill and the Garment District...





















    These last items are from a picnic in Loose Park organized by the campaign for Jason Kander, who is running for the Missouri 44th Dist. house seat... went to high school together...









    I took this final photo all the way back in April, but due to a file-naming snafu it was accidentally omitted from my last thread... this is the West Bottoms...



    and that's all for awhile.

    So.... the St. Louis thread I posted at the same time as this one has disappeared, with no word why in my private message box.

    Some great pics there (even though I'm not a big fan of the jazzy effects, that's just me, Mr. Realism).

    KC is one nice town.

    Wow. KC really has some outstanding architecture, which you've put in such an awesome perspective.

    Your timing was perfect. I just got asked today to come to KC in 6 days for a 2nd interview, this time face to face. It looks like an interesting place.

    Thanks!

    I've no clue, but I can assure you it was not intentionally deleted from this end. Please repost.

    Very nice-

    I was just in KC for a friends wedding, hung out in the crossroads and checked out the new Nelson expansion.

    Have any pictures of Brookside? My friends live there, its one of favorite neighborhoods in the Midwest.
