Hello all from the (normally) wet upper corner of the left coast! My two biggest passions in life are history and photography and since the two are usually so interlaced, both are very important to me. Over the past ten years I've taken countless photos around the Portland area, documented the changes and the stories behind the changes. I love seeing old photos of my area, especially when those photos include details and the location of the scene so I can compare it to the modern day. Whenever I'm out documenting the way things are today, I make sure to be detailed in the hopes that some future history buff not to be born for decades or even centuries will be able to look at my pictures and get the same enjoyment that I get out of old photos today. After much deliberation and research, I finally ordered my Phantom 3 Professional at the DronesPlus store in nearby Beaverton, Oregon. I was told to expect my Phantom within the next week to three weeks, depending on how many they receive in the next shipment. The price was a tough pill to swallow, I confess but with the virtually limitless possibilities of aerial photography, I already know it was worth it. I look forward to getting to know all of you and joining the ranks of responsible Phantom pilots.
