Documenting history from the air from an autonomous helicopter. These dishes are being torn down in 2011 & replaced by dot com startups. This was 320ft AGL.

These will be torn down in 2011 & all the land will be packed with subprime condominiums. The 2 sites are linked.

Some other shots while running out the battery at 550ft AGL.

May try to get better lighting if the boss ever gives time off during the day & no more condominiums are built in the next few weeks.

Unfortunately, didn't have the means to get aerial photos before this valley was developed. The memory of it as open space is gone forever.

Photographed by a home made UAV.

Well Mt Diablo isn't in Livermore.

Base on the amount of water I'd say Hwy 880/680 is near by.
