Aerial photographer Robert Cameron dies



When I saw the headline "Aerial photographer Robert Cameron dies" this morning on the first page of the Chronicle, I couldn't resist reposting this picture to share it with you guys.

I bought Robert Cameron "Above San Francisco" book once for myself a long time ago, really loved all the pictures inside and ended up buying a few more over the years to give to people in France as San Francisco souvenirs.

Mr. Cameron was 98 years old and still taking pictures of our beloved city from a helicopter.

C'est un bel hommage que tu rends à ce Monsieur Cameron et quelle sublime photo. C'est un beau ciel du vendredi sur la ville.

Oh wow -- what sad news...
But what a career... I've always wanted to take photos from a helicopter or plane -- notice how he caught this shot right at the most beautiful time of the day...

Gotta go look at his stuff...

What a beautiful photo. He certainly kept himself active, no wonder he lived a long and hopefully, happy life.
