  • Captive Airship Photography

    Specifically, use of a tethered airship in the making of a panoramic shot of San Francisco in ruins after the great quake of '06.

    Then, a modern day recreation of it 100 years later, using a helicopter instead.

    Super cool.

      Cool. Pity the newer picture could not be saved.

      'course, on o' these days, I'm gonna have to get me a great big GIANT printer. Lots of good shots at NASA, too. I try to never miss their Astronomy Picture of the Day. http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html

        That is some very cool space photography!


        It's sad that that sort of stuff is not found in more magazines and television programs.

        There is a wealth of great stuff out there, and most people never see it.

          Hey, lemec, there is usually (about 65% of the time) a really nice featured photograph on www.comcast.net (my ISP). Sometimes it's just a rock in the water, but of numerous sites I've been on it's got a consistent "cool photo".

          The other NASA site is Image of the Day, which I should have mentioned.

          NASA also has live video every time there is a launch. It's the best government site around.

            Which image could yu not get, Miqque? I was able to save everything (except the image with the zoom-in applet).

                Yeah, I looked at the source code and they're calling the image out using Flash, thereby keeping me from locating the direct path to the image.

                  Thank you,Thank you! That's mighty kind.

                  I do have a renewed interest in things like this.

                  I do enjoy seeing those photographs! :)

                  When I look at those rockets, it makes me wonder how many military rockets are launched per year. I saw on the PX forum, that one web site that had those military pictures on, one of them was a rocket launching a satellite.

                  I am eager to see more cool photographs!

                  I think I need to sign up for the comcast, so I will do so.


                  Magnificent stuff!

                  -and,as I say often, very cool!!!
