Photo walks in neighborhoods other than my own provide a much-needed change of scenery, and almost always lead to new and interesting photo subjects. In the Kansas City area there are many well-established neighborhoods with unique architecture, community diversity, and personality.
One such area, Columbus Park, is a place I’ve visited often over the years. It’s an easy neighborhood for a walkabout, and one with a lot of history and visual interest.
No matter where I go with my camera, I seem to be drawn to the same subjects. A mix of vintage signage, street art, and plant life almost always catch my eye.
The best finds are often in the side streets and alleyways. It’s always worth taking a look!
What are your favorite places to explore with camera in hand? Are they urban or rural? Familiar or brand new? I’d love to know what gets your creative juices flowing!
