Reflection at Art Museum

I like this reflection photo. It was taken in the upstairs lobby of the Wichita Art Museum, what a highly polished floor they have! Besides the various forms of art on display at this great museum - it also offers hands on creative activities for children, where they can cut, paste, color, make chalk impressions, do puppet shows, read books, and more. If you are interested in Art and Art Museums, and would like to know more about the Wichita Art Museum, click on the link. It takes you to their history page, and from there, you can click on WAM Home to go to their home page. By the way - I'm back, and would like to express a special "thank you" to my blogging assistant for keeping daily photos posted in my absence.

No right turn

Downtown Wichita has some One-Way streets, some going; south, north, east and west. I'm guessing this to be the reason for this "no right turn" sign, if a car turned right at this intersection, they would probably be driving towards oncoming traffic.

Crime doesn't pay

Wichita is not without crime - and this is a photo of the jail.

Inmates won't be escaping through those little windows.

Before this fairly new building was built - jail cells were located in an upper floor of the Sedgwick County Courthouse (blue building). Inmates are, sometimes, held in jail while awaiting their court dates, for trial and sentencing.

Standing tall

Wichita skyscrapers are not tall, in comparison to other major US cities.

This building appears to be about 13 stories high.

Parking garage

Previously this month, you may of seen this walkway posted. This is a shot of the same walk way - and, shows the parking garage that it's attached to. The angle only shows the walkway crossing over one street, but it turns and crosses a second street at the intersection, as well. Guess that makes it a "double crosser".

Pocket Park table

This shot was taken in a downtown Wichita "pocket park", and shows a round table for the downtowners to sit and rest, while viewing and enjoying the park, or their lunch - or both. Also in the background of the picture is the lunch counter statue, which I've posted about in a past entry.

A note to each of you:

I will be away from the computer this week, and have someone else posting my daily photos. If I seem a little different, or quiet - that will be why.
