Kansas City Adventure

In all the years I have lived in Missouri, I have never visited Kansas City– only driven through it.  I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun I had there.

In a day, I went to Arthur Bryants BBQ, the Power & Light district, The Plaza, Kansas City Star, the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art and Union Station.

While at Union Station, they let us hang around on the platform and take pictures as the trains arrived.  It was great dramatic lighting as passengers got off the trains.  I never thought I would have so much fun at a train station.  I think I spent over 2 hours hanging around.

Here are some shots that I got from the day:

    As I am heading home for Thanksgiving on Amtrak, the pictures are especially meaningful. The silhouettes of the passengers works very well here.
