Does anybody in the Kansas City area have any pictures of the Kansas City

skyline that they would be willing to sell?

You could go to Google Maps, go to ground view and get a number of screen dumps from the vantage point that "says" to you "Kansas City".  Move along that street area or what ever.  Save the individual images and paste them to your backdrop.  It may well be that the obvious background you would prefer is not the one that is actually visible from the tracks.

Hope this helps,

Cheers from Australia

I have the same question about Dallas. I don't have a Flicker account and would prefer not to set one up. Thoughts?

My thought is: I'm not sure but I don't think you have to "sign up" to see Flickr photos. I believe they DID change their TOS to require registering in order to download an image. Wasn't always like that.

Wonder how the OP is making out?

Cheers, Ed
