Kansas City is home to the official national World War I Museum located at Liberty Memorial. The limestone obelisk and twin sphinx shielding their eyes draws in tourists from all over the country, like the couple in our Pic of the Week.

Pitch Flickr Pool member Denzil Burriss caught this moment while trying to get a photo of Union Station and downtown KC.

While getting ready to take a picture of the monument's relief, Buriss noticed a couple wandering

at the top of the stairs holding hands. He asked the

couple, in town from Colorado, to stay where they were for a photo.

"Neither

knew there was a [World War I] Memorial in KC but were very impressed.

As

a bit of serendipity, the fellow in the photo is a USMC Gunny Sergeant.

We traded email addresses, chatted a bit over e-mail, and I sent them a

copy of the photo."

Burriss' photo is just one of many great

pics in The Pitch's

Flickr Pool. Share your best news, music, food, arts,

nightlife or random

photos by joining the group. They

may even be featured on Pitch.com.
