Thursby Road Street Party 2019


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!

If you want to save any of the 11 photos just right click and select ‘save as’- I’m sharing them with the community for free as cc license- so use them however you like but please give me (Simon Cozzolino) or Sentry UAS ltd attribution if they appear on a website or publication,

There was loads going on, kids everywhere- a DJ and enough beer and barbecues to keep the town going- so I took a quick 20 second flyover video as well:
