Photo looking out the window of a 6:50 am US Airways flight to Philadelphia taking off Sunday morning a week ago out of Kansas City International, somewhere over the rural Missouri area outside the KC metro, flying toward the sunrise. There’d be less fail in this photo if one of my fingers wasn’t visible in the lower right of the photo, but a fisheye lens is awfully wide.
On Sunday and Monday I was in Philadelphia for a quick photo gig and managed to get in some shots of the city in my off hours, with the help of a couple friends I know who live in Philly and met up with on Sunday. This is looking up Broad Street with a terminal view toward the Philadelphia City Hall in Center City.

I was asked by a local client to try and duplicate a previous photo I took last summer that at the time had more cranes in the foreground working on the Kauffman Center construction. Now there’s a demand for shots with the cranes gone, although one remains in these shots it is not very prominently seen. The first shot above is my attempt to duplicate last summer’s photo as precisely as I could figure out how. It helped having my iPhone to view the original on the screen from my own site and compare with the display on my camera as I composed this shot. I took a couple extra shots as well while the lighting was good, seen below.
