This past weekend I was treated to a light plane flight over Houston with my friend Daniel Baker. We took to the skies in a Grumman Tiger and flew over downtown and out to the ship channel before cruising out to Galveston and then back to the Sugar Land Airport.

It was harder than I anticipated. The skies were clear, but it was a windy day and at 2000 ft it was a bit bumpy. Keeping the camera steady was a challenge.

I’ll have to do this again, but on a less windy day and maybe at or near sunset to see what I can come up with.

    Isn’t it fun? Kenny flew me down to Galveston once – they typically follow the I-10 corrider then turn south by the San Jacinto Monument – looks like the same path you took. We left Galveston at sunset and I took a couple of nice shots of the seawall as we flew over. I haven’t been back up though since Kenny hasn’t flown in a couple of years.

    All of your photography is amazing. I will have to show Cindy, my fiance, these we are currently trying to get her started in the photography industry. Look forward to seeing more of your photography.

    Bumpy it may have been, but you managed to get some great shots. Recognized most of downtown. Can’t tell you how many times I drove over that causeway to Galveston during my 4+ years living in Texas City.
