"Tulips On Troost" Documentary
This morning I traveled to the southern part of Kansas City, Missouri to shoot stills and video tape for the Tulips on Troost project. The venture is an ongoing collaboration where 70,000 tulips have been planted along Troost Avenue and the intent is to plant a million.
Today, and last weekend, I was documenting volunteers planting thousands more tulip bulbs that will bloom in 2008. Three locations were involved and I managed to cover all of them.
The weather was beautiful, the subjects helpful and the tape and stills are superb. This photograph was taken at 54th Street and Troost Avenue next to Coffee Break.
I spoke with Rich, the video editor, and we believe this could be an Emmy Award-winning story.
