I have mentioned that my father was an amature pilot, I grew up around little airplanes and little airports in Michigan and Florida. I also mentioned that I was an uber camera nerd as a teenager. I bought a lot of camera equipment, with money I earned. Some of it I earned working on the family farm, but even more I made taking aerial photos of farms and businesses.
If I am at all familiar with the geography, I am very good at finding things on the ground from the air. If I know your neighborhood, I can find your house from the air.
So here I am, taking a picture of my house from an Airbus A-320. Not your typical aircraft for taking aerial pictures. Above the wingtip, there are four (it may look like three) buildings that are kind of crescent shaped. I own a condo in one of them. The house in the DC burbs.
