This is how my day started



It was rainy but otherwise nice outside, and so I thought I would go for a spin and eventually ended up around Port Stanley. Five mins into my drive I passed London Health Sciences Centre on Commissioners at Wellington. The Air ambulance was just sitting there on the pad empty. So I crossed my fingers and parked on the SW corner of Wellington and Commissioners and walked back towards the pad. A distance of about 200m. Before I crossed the street I noticed there were people around the helicopter and loading a patient in. At the parking lot entrance, the engines began to spool up and the rotors began to turn. Luckily, it didn't lift off for another 45 seconds and I was right up in front of the pad well before it did. I got some shots on the ground, as it rose up, slowly pivoted towards me, and then went right over my head at abour 15m. Was pretty cool.

I then headed South towards lake Erie. More shots later on Flickr for sure.

Carpe Diem

You've reinforced the notion that success in photography is often due to a combination of luck - the fact that you were driving by at that moment - and intuition - that you had the intuition to stop and think through the possibilities.

I love when things work out that way. It's no wonder you'll go far with your lens.

To quote George Peppard: " I love it when a plan comes together..." :) Thanks Carmi.
