A client asked me to shoot the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus “Elephant Lunch” in Kansas City, Missouri on September 8, 2010. Hundreds of people crowded in front of the Sprint Center to watch the Asian elephants eat a lunch of fruits, vegetables, and bread. The 139th Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus will perform eight shows in Kansas City on September 8-12.

Ironically, the name of the street where the elephants ate lunch is Grand.
