Number 20: Kansas City Union Station

Kansas City Union Station

Number 20 is a black and white photograph of the Grand Central Station in Kansas City.  Karen and I met her sister Julie and Julie’s husband (who just happens to be my best friend) Neil in Kansas City to go the renaissance fair, which if you like that sort of thing I highly recommend it.  It takes place every fall and I have been going off and on since I was little.  Well, we went to the renaissance fair early in the morning and were there for a few hours when we went to an outdoor shopping mall called the legends for lunch.  Karen and I always have a good time when we get to hang out with Julie and Neil, and they were not quite ready to head home.  So we decided to head down town without a map, mind you, to find the central station.  Neither of us had been to the Grand Central Station and just looking at the architecture was really enlightening.

I put the picture in black and white because I feel it captures the feelings of that old building much better than a color picture would.  When I look at the picture I feel like it is from an old black and white movie and it feels regal.  My imagination starts to run and I see it as scene from a Humphrey Bogart movie.  It is old Hollywood magic.
