Frustrated by trees, power lines and other objects obstructing views around town, I decided to purchase the Manfrotto “Super High Camera Stand”. Essentially a tripod extending to 24 feet high, it should allow me new and unique perspectives on the city.

Several images from this series are test runs with this new tool.
