So Long, Endeavour!

The Endeavour passed through Houston on its way to California. As it flew low and slow over the city it flew right past my office window. It’s not every day you can look out your window and see a spaceship fly by. This was taken with the Sony A77 and 70-400G lens. The ghosting around […]
