Today the Space Shuttle Endeavour was making its way down to LAX and flew right over the Bay Area. It was flying down the Peninsula and I live a little more inland so I wasn’t sure if I would be able to see it. But I started thinking about all the planes that do fly over our house going to Moffett Field so I thought I would take the chance and hang out in my front yard just in case. Half-heartedly thinking that it would fly by, I was messing around with my camera and its settings when all of a sudden I hear the engines of the plane.
In a panic, I start looking for the plane through my lens and trying to focus not realizing I had left it on an inappropriate setting. Talk about the biggest missed photo op ever!! At least I got these – this is with a 300mm zoom and I cropped in slightly to get closer but can you imagine if these had been in focus! These were taken from my front yard – a little bit of history literally flew right over my house today.
