These lamposts line the river walk.


A view of some unique rooftops. One reminds me of a crown, it's another church. Another has a large set of reddish orange neon letters that spell out COMMODORE - it's an apartment building. I like the puff of smoke, but I don't think it's really smoke, I think it's more of the affect seen when inside air meets with frigid outside air. It's more like a puff of fog, than smoke.

Located at the intersection of Broadway and Central is a beautiful old cathedral. I've always admired the architecture of this church, and especially the pretty towers that top it. The largest of the towers is mostly hidden by the angle of this photo.

Ice cold

The other day, as sunlight was streaming into the kitchen, I had some photography fun with light, shadows, and Coca-Cola. The small round bottle was a Christmas edition. The other is a regular year round 2-liter version. And, the glass in the middle was the ice cold refreshing Coca-Cola I was about to drink.

Speaking of ice cold - Wichita got coated with a thin layer of ice. It made for some slippery driving conditions. Most of the main roads were treated with salt or sand, and clear. But, some of the side roads and driveways were like ice rinks. It's times like this, that I'm glad I live in the flat lands of Kansas. I'd rather slide over into a curb, than off the side of a mountain.
It was hard to walk on, and hard to drive on - traffic crept slowly, as people were going to and from work. Kansas gets all kinds of weather, from hot to cold, wet to dry, windy to calm, cloudy to sunny - a smorgasborg of weather conditions. I accept them all, but favor warm sunshine with cool gentle breezes.
What's your favorite weather?

This sculpture is located at Century II Convention Center and can be seen from Douglas Street.
I enjoy looking at the the round convention center with the blue roof, more than the abstract sculpture. This photo is best viewed by clicking to enlarge.

Snow bunny?

What animal left these tracks in the newfallen snow? I'm guessing it was a cute little cottontail rabbit. What's your guess? If you enlarge this photo, you can see the snow glistens with tiny shiny sparkles. It's very pretty - so pure and clean.

Colorful Benches

These colorful benches, line the entrance to Exploration Place.
