Spring in Loose Park

It’s spring in KC – although it actually feels like summer already! Here are a few photos I shot last week, for the first time in a while. It felt great! Nothing particularly exciting here, but I’m happy to be out shooting photos again. My photo buddy, Dara, and I went to Loose Park to wander around and get the creative juices moving.

Windy DayGetting warmed up – and the wind wouldn’t cooperate! So I decided to go with it.

Colorful IrisesAn almost fall mixture of burgandy and soft yellows.

Spring IrisA little more up close and personal.

Purple IrisAnd a little brighter purple. Remembering that vertical shots are nice, too!

More subtle color here, but such interesting textures.

Spring Morning CactusCactus and morning shadows.

An interesting mixture of plants and rocks.

Purple FlowersI love this combination of purples and greens.

Golden FlowersI like how the background disappears and we’re left with just the not-really-in-focus yellow flowers.

Japanese MapleWhat a beautiful tree!

Green Spikes

And one final closeup detail.

That’s it. A little bit of spring in Kansas City.
