Subject: [Leica] IMGs: Blue Angels over the Bay

The US Navy's Blue Angels were among the aerial demonstrations during Fleet
Week   .

I posted a few snapshots at

It was the first time in six months that I held my camera in my hands.
Leica M8, Elmarit 90mm.
Hi Oliver,
WELL DONE LAD!!!  Certainly having not had your Leica in the hands for "6

All the regular aerial images are fine planes against sky blue.

HOWEVER? :-) You know what's coming eh? ;-) Right smack beautiful, a
smashing land mass and planes zipping by over head............

"ALCATRAZ AND FLY-PAST!" An absolute beauty! As it's a rare opportunity
during an air show that one has the opportunity to capture planes and
recognizable land mass as you've captured here! AMAZING REALLY!!!!! 

GOOD ON YOU LAD. I'd be looking at trying to sell that particular image
somewhere. Local calendar people, Alcatraz office or government people?
Harbour control office? Anyone who prints calendars using local scenes! This
is so perfect I just can't imagine not making a few dollars in selling
copies and or rights to use the image!

Good luck with it!
Dr. ted :-)
