St. Louis Art Museum by Helicopter

My second attempt with slightly steadier hands. If you ever get a chance to ride in a helicopter with your camera do it immediately. What a rush!

Nikon D90, Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 @ 50mm, f2.8, 1/30, ISO 3200 hand held

Great shot of one of my favorite hang outs! And, man, it must have been cold!

I haven't done any chopper shooting since the early '70s. Can't say I enjoyed it at the time, what with the pots shots and rocket fire from the ground. On one occasion above Phnom Penh, I had an brand new Olympus OM-1 vibrate into pieces as I shot. Luckily, I had my trusty Nikon F gear to complete the assignment.
