View From My Window

Oh, how I envy Meg’s California vistas.  The ocean, the rocks and the shore.  I haven’t even mentioned the vineyards.

But late last week I was reminded that Kansas City also has some great views.  When my co-worker encouraged me to look out my office window I was surprised and delighted with the simple beauty of the late afternoon skyline.  Hope you like these photographs “from my window”.

These pictures are taken facing West from the Jackson County Courthouse.  They were taken at about 5:00 p.m. as the sun was setting.  The combination of the rich color of the sky, combined with the lights from the city structures are a simple reminder of the loveliness of city life.

Even within the course of a few minutes, the colors of the sky changed dramatically.

Enjoy, and have a great weekend.

  1. Sunrise. Sunset. Swiftly fly the days. I’m watching the morning colors change out my window before the sun is up. Mom is enjoying this, too.
