If you haven’t tried The Dapper Doughnut yet - don’t! You will crave them!! I had resisted until taking a tour of some sweet stops in downtown Wichita last week. They were so good. My favorites were lemon blueberry and the good ol’ cinnamon and sugar. The owner joked that since they are mini doughnuts, the calories are small too...I wish! #MTJAinICT #visitwichita #wichita #kansas #noplacelikeKS #ictdining #donuts #minidonuts

One night after a conference organized dinner, I offered to walk any interested attendees (all out of towners and all but three were from out of state) from Old Town back to the Drury Hotel Broadview, stopping at some spots along the way for photos and/or drinks. It reminded me how infrequently I go out for drinks these days in downtown Wichita! Here are a couple of photos I took on the walk back.

"The personality of our Kansas population is front and center. People are kind and inviting, their passions on full display and the history of our heritage is put at the forefront." * Our family had SO MUCH fun at the State Fair opening weekend.

I finally got to hear more about the #Horizontes mural project, from one of the lead organizers Armando Minjarez. It’s the largest mural in North America painted by a single artist, Colombian street artist GLeo; she completed it in about 3 months. You can’t get very close because it’s on a grain elevator surrounded by active train tracks. They are working on a viewing platform that the public can use. Swipe for some additional art we came across while exploring Wichita last week. This was the one partially rainy day we had during the Midwest Travel Journalists Association meeting but luckily we were spending our afternoon inside at a couple of craft breweries. #MTJAinICT #visitwichita #wichita #kansas #noplacelikeKS #publicart #grainelevator #horizontesmural #horizontesproject

Thanks to @mickeyshannonphotography for leading our sunrise photography session at #keeperoftheplains. I picked up some tips on angles to consider while Mickey and Laura at @farflungtravels helped with some technical techniques with shooting sunrise on my Canon. These are a few of the iPhone snaps I captured alongside the DSLR work. caught the Wichita State Rowing tram on the Arkansas River but they didn’t come all the way up to the bridge. #MTJAinICT #visitwichita #wichita #kansas #noplacelikeKS #keeperoftheplains #sunrise

This sunset happened in mid August at the Keeper of the Plains, it had such amazing colors throughout the golden and blue hours. It was well worth sweating to death in the high humidity and I couldn’t resist panning to the right side bridge where there was so much amazing color, enjoy!! #keeperoftheplains #igwichita #wichita #wichitawesome #wichitalifeict #wichitakansas #wichitatourism #wichitaphotography #hellowichita #canon80dphotography #canonusa #canonfanphoto #canon80d #sigmausa #sigmalens #sigma1835art #kansasphotography #kansasphotos #kansas #ig_shotz_sunset

The Flint Hills tour that followed the Midwest Travel Journalists Association meeting in Wichita ended today. One of several highlights was a sunset ride through tallgrass prairie with Flying W Ranch. I had a great time learning more about this section of Kansas — the largest remaining intact tallgrass prairie left in North America — and being a part of this tour that introduced the area to folks from Minneapolis, St. Louis and Tucson. #MTJAinICT #noplacelikeks #kansas #flinthills

Cinder & Smoke at Dockum, the speakeasy in the lower level of the Ambassador Hotel in downtown Wichita. It’s in a former bank building and it’s name honors the Dockum Drug Store that was in the same block and where the nation’s first organized lunch counter sit-in happened on July 19, 1958. #MTJAinICT #visitwichita #noplacelikeKS #wichita #kansas #blowtorch

If you enjoy folk art, you definitely need to spend some time in Lucas, KS- the Grassroots Capital of KS. This is the quirkiest town we have visited, and loved every minute of it! We will share more pictures and places around Lucas another time, but for now we share this full-size automobile built by Herman Divers made entirely of aluminum pull-tabs! You can see this vehicle at the Grassroots Art Center in Lucas, KS along with many, many other works of art! #folkart #exploreeverything #exploreeverywhere #roadtripusa #roadtrip #roadtrippin #roadtrippers #notallwhowanderarelost #quirky #oddities #oddball #NoPlaceLikeKs

Shot this yesterday evening with @winstons_adventures_ out at Heritage Park in Olathe. I did a quick edit with Lightroom on my phone last night. We’re heading to Grinter Farm this evening for sunset shots. Wanna come along?

Thursday the 12th brought a beautiful sunset that became a Nautical Hour sunset as the glow lingered for almost an hour after sunset. This was near the beginning of the sunset taken with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II with 7-14mm f2.8 Pro lens. I made a single exposure at 1/100 f5 iso200 7mm with cloudy white balance from the dock of one of the small ponds on the property. I love the park like setting. Our second son was recently married on this spot. I never tire of the views. From here I went to the large pond to make some panoramas. By the way this is very close to out of camera. The unusual pink color filled the sky from horizon to horizon. Might share more later. @getolympus #Kansas #kansasphotos #travel #kansasmag #noplacelikeks #midwestmoment #sunset #reflectedlight

This weekend, I spent time with the community of Stockton, Kansas at their car show held at Webster State Park 🚘 I performed a live painting capturing some antique cars against the background of the lake and it was auctioned off to benefit OK Kids Day, a free program at Webster State Park to engage kids through nature and outdoor activities.
