For anyone who's going to be in or near the Kansas City area anytime during
the next few months, you may be interested to know there's an exhibiton of
95 National Geographic photos on display at the Kansas City Museum through
January 3. From the museum's web site at

                       On Display October 3, 1998 - January 3, 1999.

                Visit sunken ships, explore Egyptian tombs, view unique
lifeforms on the ocean
                floor and savor the perfect structure of a snowflake in the
Kansas City Museum's
                fall exhibit, National Geographic: The Photographs.

                National Geographic: The Photographs features 95 images
from the last 15
                years of National Geographic magazine. You'll learn the
facts behind the
                photographs and the inside stories of the men and women who
took them.

                Based on a recent book by the same title, the exhibit
captures rare moments in nature
                and the lives of animals, along with defining events in the
lives of people

I just got wind of this exhibit this morning; I'll check it out next
weekend. Gotta be some Leica-taken photos in the bunch! Should anyone be
nearby and need directions, feel free to e-mail me. Also, NG photographer
Jim Richardson will be presenting a slide show and lecture at the museum on

(Eric, you're not far away, in St.Joe. Surely you'll make a KC run for this
exhibit? :-))
