5 June, Saturday

We moved to our new apartment because it has a balcony. When I'm not working on fixing up the apartment, I'm on that balcony. In the mornings, with my coffee, I watch the people walking their dogs, leaving for work. And in the evenings I see a repeat. I also see the people in our building going for their walks. Some go in the mornings, some in the evenings. Mostly they go alone. Often when they get to the end of our driveway they stop for a moment.


16 May, Sunday

I have known this tree since I was young. I would walk by it in summer on my way to the tennis courts. It is located in the valley between the tennis courts to the south and the rose garden to the north and while I have admired it often this is, I believe, the only photograph I’ve ever taken of it. On Sunday in the middle of a day of rain, a week of rain, there was an hour break. I went to the park to see how the roses were doing. They will be late blooming this year — in February we had nine days in a row below 15 degrees.


9 April, The Nelson

Mini golf at the Nelson is back and very popular. There are nine holes inspired by art in the Nelson’s collection. There’s also a snack bar that serves frozen custard and craft beer. The next closest mini golf in town is Cool Crest in Independence. Their course has an Eiffel Tower hole, a Dutch windmill hole and a rocket ship hole. Their snack bar serves hot dogs, popcorn and Pepsi.

9 January, Southmoreland Park

3 January, Rockhill

I like to read the plaque as you enter the Rockhill neighborhood. It's a needed reminder that the name comes from William Rockhill Nelson's mother, not the limestone walls that are so common there. Here we see the remnants of the Rockhill Tennis Club where as a kid I would sometimes work as a ball boy. In the foreground is another remnant—the beginning of what would become Andy Goldsworthy's  Walking Wall.


2 January, 43rd Street

Slippery walking tonight. I like the combination of winter twilight and these classic Kansas City apartment buildings at 43rd and McGee. White columns, white porches, white streets. Thanks to Ezra Stoller for teaching me the allure of power poles.                                                                                                                                                                            

1 January, New Year's Day

Back in March, early in the pandemic, I would photograph from this corner. So many people were working from home, schooling from home, that on a nice evening or weekend the sidewalks would be full of people out walking.
