Noticed some birds in flight

Today while shooting for a non-profit agency in downtown San Jose, some children I was photographing noticed a hummingbird. We all stopped to check it out, this is from stopping to watch like a kid in wonder at nature. Something that I should do more often, I know…

I also noticed that the flight path went directly overhead. After the shoot, I took a walk to get closer to the airport. I got as close as possible without breaking any rules or climbing over any fences. As I was waiting, I lined up the end of the radar system across the freeway and then had this radio post in the foreground. For a couple of shots I tried to line up the image with the top of the post. It was a bit of fun anyways, stood out from the crowd on first glance!

A fun way to look at what could be an ordinary scene, of course I got the regular shots too
