All's I need now is that soundtrack to Psycho and have those renderings somehow pulsate and move in and out on the above picture!

See what I mean about that giant outdoor deck on top of the EMI/EMP? It's huge.

This is Oak Bay, looking northwest from Willows. It was taken by " thebugs' " from flickr.



Check out the almost full parking lot at the airport.

Hey all, this is "tnano" from flickr. I take the aerial photos of Victoria every once in a while. I've just posted a few more on my site today: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tnano/

I welcome any special requests for photos, and will try and get them if I'm in the position. I don't usually just fly over Victoria but I am scheduled to do multiple flights all weekend Nov 18,19 for short tours over the city. However I will be the pilot so I cannot put very much effort into the photography as I must fly the plane!

If anyone is very keen to get a specific aerial shot, I'll gladly donate my time and fly you wherever for the cost of operating the aircraft. In a small light Cessna it is about 120.00 an hour, or 2.00 a minute. So a 40 minute flight would be about 80 dollars.

This is one of my favorites because these night shots are very hard in a moving plane without a tripod.




And some more:

Right on, thanks tnano!

Maybe we'll actually take you up for the offer sometime soon. That'd be pretty wild :D

Btw, have you ever flown student pilots out of the Victoria Flying Club? I was looking at your photo on your flickr account and you look a bit familiar.

Know it all.

/\ It's Corazon Madness 7 for one Sale now at Crazy Buildings 'R Us!! :D

wild thing is that all those buildings, even at their significant height don't make much of a difference in that aerial picture!! Maybe all the Hudson buildings, The Well really won't be that overwhelming afterall :wink:

thanks a k-billion Tnano for those incredible pics of yours, I look forward to them every time! I think we should take you up on your offer, and go out some time in the spring when aerial pictures are much prettier than the upcoming winter.

If you could some more pictures of the north end of downtown and Harris Green. This one might be more difficult: a far off shot which sorta shows the whole southern tip of Victoria, with downtown clearly visible along with the Olympic Mountains, Mount Baker, several freighters, sea planes, helicopter, the Coho, Victoria Clipper, killer whales, kite surfers all in one. Please and Thank You. If not, even the first few on that list would be cool!

Oh btw, check out this thread on Skyscraper Page, to see more people drooling over your great Victoria pictures:

thanks again for sharing!

This was my point. A tower twice as tall as Corazon doesn't really look so tall from that angle, does it? That's it, I'm a believer now.

A Y-lot sized building would also seem to be a good fit for the Pandora lot.

Yo tnano. Great pics!
If you're taking requests, could you try and grap a frame or two of South Fairfield closer to Cook St and Dallas road?
That would be saweet!

Yes that is a very very nice offer. I would love to take you up on it. I am sure a few others would too.

anyone else want to do this.

How many can you take?

Thanks for the compliments! The airplane is a Cessna 172, which can hold a total of 4 people, so 3 passengers. The back windows aren't the greatest for shooting and some photos may have glare and some color distortion (may be fixed in photoshop). The person sitting up front can have the window open if they would like. This enables you to get the strait down shots and no window effects.
I'll write down those requests and try and get the shots next time I go flying but it is tough getting certain shots when I'm flying and the weather probably isn't going to be the greatest for many of the flights. I was a passenger when I took the recent photos.
