Fort Mifflin

April 08, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I usually don't get a window seat when I'm flying. I like the aisle so I can stretch my feet out even if it does mean the occasional bruise from the drinks cart. 

Last week I was on a short flight from Dulles to Philadelphia. The plane was pretty small as it was a 23 minute flight, and I had the whole row to myself. The row had just the one seat - 1A and just before landing at PHL I spotted this Fort and had enough time to take a picture with my Phone. 

I do like to shoot with real tilt shift lens, using a DSL with a gyro stabilizer from a helicopter, but sometimes a quick snap from a phone out of plane window does the trick !

To get an idea how close this is to the airport and why I was so low when I took this photo - check out Google Maps.
