C.T. Thongklin  Photographer-meteorologist-cyclist-violinist-commercial aircraft parts ninja dude. Kansas City, Missouri.

Almost finished with this container of romaine lettuce and I’m living to tell about it! (I’m also current on my life insurance premiums.)

Maybe it’s the jet fuel but I don’t care it’s December. Highs in the upper 50s = shorts + short sleeves.

I share so much of my photography here on IG that I sometimes forget to share another passion of mine that I often neglect... performing music.

This was a cover of Cristina Perri’s ‘A Thousand Years’ I did before a wedding this afternoon in Nebraska City, Nebraska. It’s been 31 years since I started playing violin. 🎻🎶🙂

They say “time flies when you’re having fun.” In a blink, my weekend just flew by, and back to slinging aircraft parts tomorrow.

Got word at the last minute that one of my pieces was selected for a local group art show at @leopoldgallery thanks to a long-time mentor, fellow meteorologist, and friend @bbuzzman08 who corralled the photography talent of some of his fellow forecasters and storm chasers in an opening show Friday.
.
Also had the privilege of discovering one of @lauranugentpaintings that would be the perfect fit for my home and meeting an artist who knew her talent and career from the beginning. Great conversation!
.
Lastly, it was awesome connecting in person with another local artist @stan_kenly I enjoy following and adopted his original of a familiar scene of North Kansas City that I remember since I was young which now has a perfect spot in my home.

It’s been a memorable and awesome short journey especially this year becoming an emerging artist getting more immersed in what I’m learning is a very embracing, encouraging local arts community here in Kansas City. K.C. is lucky to have the pool of talent of artists but also the quality of the people behind the arts scene and how they not only care about their fellow artists but also love the community in which they thrive.
