Photography in Kansas City Area and Other Cities
Like many larger cities east of the Mississippi River, Kansas City was once a major transportation hub. Kansas City once served as the starting point for several wagon trails. The railroads came later, and Kansas City's central location led it to become the major hub for the cattle industry. Fast forward to modern day and Kansas City boasts an attractive skyline and a population of almost 2 million, although that figure includes some residents across the state line in Missouri.
The result is tons of variety for architectural photography in Kansas City. Point your camera at the skyline for the traditional city shot, then head over and photograph Union Station. Along the way, you can find Art Deco buildings and some giant brick warehouses in varying states of restoration and original condition, sometimes on the same building!
Kansas City is also home to a Harley Davidson factory; however, photography is prohibited on the tour in the factory area. Pictures may only be taken in the tour center. Other photography opportunities around Kansas City and other cities include the Kansas City Royals Baseball Stadium, the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas State University, and numerous memorials and tributes to major state figures like Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Of course, like anywhere, there are plenty of fun buildings, fountains, parks, and museums around Kansas, particularly in Wichita, Kansas City, and near the universities. Look around and you are sure to find some great places to take pictures in Kansas.
