Okay, we've seen Gates photos ad nauseum over the past three weeks, shot with
every lens Leica ever thought of making, mounted on virtually every body. So
here is what I think may just be the best Gates photo I've seen yet - with 
caveats: I'm excluding some of the overviews that we've seen in the media; 
I recognize that knowing what this is requires that one has neither been in a
coma these past three weeks, nor is one blind.

Oh, was shot with a Canon Powershot A20 by an MIT student named
Victoria Fan, a "beginner" in my Documentary Photo class. It was one of the 
photos in her "Space Ship" assignment. 

BTW - Could it benefit from a crop turning it into a tight vertical? 
Perhaps. Or
Perhaps not.
