Every year in my local area Thursby Road, near Abington Park in closed off to traffic and the residents remove their vehicles at the end of June for a street party. I only live a couple of streets over and this year a resident asked me if I would take an aerial photo of the event and of course- any excuse to get a flight in on a sunny afternoon is a good one! Any inner city aerial photography is a bit of a safety headache, but this was relatively simple. Permission was obtained from houses within the requisite distance of my TO/L spot and healthy doses of zoom were used from above rooftops to give the impression of an overhead shot- without being directly overhead or too close!
