for the past few years i've hyped up wichitahenge, a play off manhattanhenge. which is the phenomenon where the setting sun perfectly aligns with the grid of manhattan, new york. granted the streets of manhattan are skewed causing this to happen on a very specific date, so wichita's version isn't as unique, falling exactly on the equinox, but it's still really cool to see. the last few years i've photographed this event and invited other people to do so as well. although after three years of hoping to see crowds of people downtown with cameras in hand, this year i heard regina george's voice in my head saying,
"stop trying to make "wichitahenge" happen, it's not going to happen."
although there aren't mobs of people trying to get the perfect witchtahenge shot, there are a few pics from other photographers out there.
here's one from my friend brad ruder:
another from leslley anne scotte i found online:
maybe in a few years it'll take off. as for now, this yearly quest, is just a simple reminder, summer is over. it's time for fall.
