City Aerial Photos
Found some cool aerial shots of San Francisco and Los Angeles, please feel free to add other cities.....

San Francisco
flickr user: ATIS547 (obviously a pilot, first six photos)

You can almost see Sacramento

You can see all of the new construction, the photos are very recent.

Los Angeles

Great downtown shot
flickr user: Marshall Astor

Actually from the Getty, not aerial, but is elevated to show perspective. Shows Century City and DT in the distance.
flickr user: Maijau

Marina Del Rey inlet, can see Wilshire, Westwood, and Century City in distance

Cool shots! Those SF photos are pretty recent, maybe 6-8 weeks ago? And the first few are even newer.

I figured so, I was last in SF last summer, so I knew it was pretty recent.

wow, you can really see what the fire did

And how did they take this picture? Baloon?

BTinSF Apr 18, 2008 7:52 PM

^^^Believe it or not, kites according to the web site, but the picture says "captive airship" in the lower left corner.
