Aerial Photography

Zhiquan graciously took us up a couples times while he was clocking in flight-hours for his next pilots test. We took a few photos when we flew over our neighborhood, but nothing extensive. It later occurred to me that CMU would probably love some aerial shots of campus for marketing materials. I asked if they'd be willing to provide funding to cover the plane rental. CMU agreed, so we took to the skies over Pittsburgh again. Armed with five cameras, Jason, Amy, Zhiquan (when not flying the plane) and I snapped a few hundred photos of campus, the city and various neighborhoods. We also took video, which came out very blair witch due to turbulence.
