The Children’s Fountain is not only one of Kansas City’s largest fountains, but is also one of just a handful located north of the Missouri River. The six bronze figures of children are busy being kids engrossed in activities like jumping, dancing, and playing ball. When I visit this fountain, I immediately think of the Von Trapp children from The Sound of Music and the scene where Maria gets them out of their uniforms and into play clothes she made from some old curtains. Anyone else see that in this fountain?
Another challenge I faced trying to capture this fountain is the busy street full of car dealerships if I shot the children head on. I’d like to go back and try that angle again, perhaps when my Photoshop skills are at a level when I can easily remove them as a distraction from the background.
