:shock:

Thanks for sharing these, they're really great! I've never seen a shot of Manhattan looking south that were as sharp and clear like these. The light really worked in your favor.

Ya I saw those too. They are absolutely beautiful shots, and capture so much of the city. Also, they are extremely recent too which is great.

Nice perspectives, indeed. And rather comprehensive...even Allston Village got covered. I'd like to see this photographer cover Central Square, Coolidge Corner, and the length of Huntington Ave. too...and retake these later in the day, in better light.

That was an amazing thread. However I would like to see him cover more on Boston's third skyline, the Longwood area.

I noticed that in the shots of Brigham Circle it looks like the city has actually turned it into a traffic circle. Can anyone confirm this?

It looks like a traffic circle from the air. It doesn't "behave" like a traffic circle from the street. you're seeing those silly painted crosswalks that the city spent to much money on...

Re: Aerials

I think this is somewhat famous as I seem to remember seeing/reading about this before, but for those who have not yet seen it:



Quote:
World?s Oldest Surviving Aerial Photo

The first aerial photo was taken by Gaspard-F?lix Tournachon, better known as Nadar, in 1858, using a tethered balloon over the Bievre Valley, France.

Unfortunately, Nadar?s aerial photos were lost - so the oldest surviving aerial photo, shown here, was that of Boston in 1860, taken by James Wallace Black, also using a balloon.

Re: Aerials



I miss 1860.



This city is so fragile. Just a few blocks from the Common, and it falls apart. Why can't Druker build over yonder?
