Aren't all the good ones

He had a great run at nearly 100. Thanks for sharing the story.

I'd love to own an ultra lite to shoot from. That would be just too cool.

Robert Cameron was a client of Faulkner Color Lab in San Francisco (now gone: E6, Ektacolor prints, internegs, duplicates, Ciba). I dealt with Faulkner's most demanding clients so did meet him. He was a photo celebrity because of his "Above" books... his work was both beautiful and perfect.

We're planning a trip to Halifax and Louisbourg next summer, so, time permitting, I'll let you know. You might be able to try yourself at aerial photography.

I'll be there in a heatbeat Flyer/ Yves. I know these areas well and would be your tour guide for nothing. I've had the opportunity to fly helicopters many times but they vibrate so much. it was before the days of SR.
