[photography] Blue Angels at FleetWeek in San Francisco

Fleet week is in San Francisco. And Blue Angles are back, roaring through crisp autumn skies, ‘shock-and-awe’ing crowds, scaring dogs and ticking off some San Francisco Board of Supervisors 🙂 (see here and here )

I love watching these precision flying machines and love photographing them even more! I went to the practice runs on Thursday and Friday [they practice for 2 days – Thu & Fri, and fly for the crowds during the weekend]. Here are some photos:

I have an article that talks about logistics of photographing Fleet Week in San Francisco, and detailing some of the best places to ‘shoot’ Blue Angles, including GPS co-ordinates plotted on a Google Map.

Here are some pictures from 2005, around Fort Point of Golden Gate Bridge

And SFChronicle photographers produce some amazing photos of the event. See here and here.
