Art the Virus


A Facebook page, online, is having people do just that, kind of "art the virus", in an attempt to give us things to do during and maybe with this pandemic. My contributions are photography, more than anything. Here's today's contribution. This is from Fairway, Kansas today, very near State Line.

Exile


Exile Tattoo, as it says, on 39th Street tonight, at sunset.


'Twas a brilliant, beautiful sunset.

Have a great weekend, y'all.

Ward Parkway Amusement


I saw this yesterday on, yes, Ward Parkway, and had to go back and get a shot of it.


I figure it's either the staff or a thrifty family member or friend. Right?

Or just someone who wants to not use much gas?

Autumn Reflections


(Get it?)  

Again, midtown Atlanta, Georgia, this time last year. I was pet sitting and so, walking the dogs one afternoon when I ran across this perfectly-timed, accidental reflection.

Shot this Summer, out the window, here in Brookside. That's one busy sky. Again, click on picture for larger, better viewing.

Summer Sunset


This summer, a few weeks ago, in the city.



A Maxfield Parrish Moment


Yes sir and ma'am, a Maxfield Parrish sunset, sky and moment, at least to me, on the campus of UMKC, just outside White Recital Hall this summer. It was just after one of their July Summerfest performancs on a Saturday evening.



Delicate Visitor




Tease


From Westport, this Summer.  I just saw and liked it.

Westport Sunset


Shot a few weeks ago on Westport Road.



Nelson Surprise


I was at the Nelson again, no surprise, and saw this simple, beautiful sculpture. It was part of their "30 Americans" installation. I immediately only saw a face staring back at me, at us. Upon a quick closer look, I realized what it was made of.


It was another surprising, even wonderful exhibit from the Nelson again, not a huge surprise. They keep doing such great things over there. Hope you saw it.

Kemper Selfie


I was at the Kemper (Museum of Contemporary Art) this Summer and caught this.



Bagpipes and Drums


This group was at HJ Community Center on Wornall a few weeks ago, one evening. I heard the noise, the bagpipes, specifically, and went to see what was going on. They were preparing for a performance and competition the following weekend in Minneapolis. They are the St. Andrew Pipes and Drums. If you can ever catch one of their performances, it's highly recommended.

Summer Sunrise, Brookside


This is my view every morning, in the parking lot, on the way to my car for work. I got this a few weeks ago at sunrise. If you didn't see the power lines, it nearly looks as though I live in the woods.

Summerfest, B & W


From the Summerfest series in July at UMKC's White Recital Hall.



Car Show


There was a car show put on by Veterans this Summer, an annual event, at Synchrony Bank on 67th Street in Merriam, just off I-35. I volunteered to shoot it for them. This was, obviously, one of the beauties.

Dinner Sunset


I've shot the sunset coming through the windows several times, many, really, in Westport at Bistro 303. I committed to myself I wouldn't post just one more unless it was different. I think this did just that.



Sunset Welcome


This was at the HJ Community Center on Wornal, in Brookside, last week at sunset.
