#dallascityscape

MOST RECENT

For 50 years, people around the world saw our city through the lens of the Kennedy assassination...This place is not really a park. It is a piece of the soul of our city. The idea was that we needed a gathering place. A place for unity of people of all backgrounds, of all religions, of all races. A place to say thank-you. A place of thankfulness.
-Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings

THIS SESSION 🙌🏻
We broke lots of rules and got to places we probably shouldn’t have, and it was totally worth it. These two are so in love and so much fun. Can’t help but have fun when you’re around them!

Diurnal
Contrary to the rumors, my drone doesn’t burst into flames when exposed to direct sunlight. [image captured by Daniel J. Hale on 20180518 with a DJI Phantom 4 Pro hovering IN BROAD DAYLIGHT over Flag Pole Hill Park in Dallas, Texas].

Dallascape
I’ve loved the Dallas skyline since I was a sleepy-eyed kid staring jaw-agape at its skyscrapers through the windows of a Ford Country Squire speeding past on the turnpike. There are a lot of great cityscapes in America. San Diego’s is one of my favorites. As is Chicago’s. And Manhattan’s (of course). But this is *my* skyline. [image captured by Daniel J. Hale during civil twilight on 20180506 - a Sunday morning - with a DJI Phantom 4 Pro hovering over a near-deserted downtown Dallas, Texas].

Anger Management
I fly downtown Dallas before sunrise on Sundays because a) the streets are practically empty, and, b) I love the way the buildings look in the blue-hour light. I’ll encounter an odd individual or two at times, but usually I don’t see another soul. At dawn yesterday morning - a Sunday - I sent my Phantom up into the air to capture this as well as my previous post. As I was landing the drone, an older man in an SUV came to a quick stop nearby and yelled something out his open passenger window. The Phantom 4 Pro’s pretty loud, and it was only getting louder as it descended, so I couldn’t hear what the man said. I glanced back and asked him to hold on for a moment. He kept yelling. Because of the distraction, I almost brought the aircraft in for too hard of a landing, but I managed to save it at the last moment. When the drone was safely on the ground, I looked back and asked what the man wanted. He half-screamed, “Did you order an Uber?” There I was, having just landed my drone, standing a few feet from my parked vehicle with its rear hatch wide open. The answer to his question seemed obvious, but I was polite, and I answered no. He said, “Well, why didn’t you say so in the first place?!” He then cursed at me and sped away. All I could do was laugh and head to Fuel City for tacos. [image captured by Daniel J.

Dallas Icon
This photo was so technically challenging, it took two FAA-licensed UAV pilots to capture it safely. My fellow drone-geek Matt and I had been trying to get this shot for months, but the conditions were never quite right. Finally, this morning, everything fell into place. Pegasus Park was empty. The air was still. The blue-hour sky was clear. We managed to lock onto the required minimum number of GPS satellites and send the drone straight up to its ceiling. And there it was - the Pegasus! In frame! I clicked the shutter button and … got an error message. I’d forgotten to reinsert the microSD card that I’d removed to take to Europe to use in my travel drone. We landed quickly, inserted another card and sent the drone straight back up. The light was still acceptable, but it had changed remarkably in five minutes - it was no longer magical. We squeezed off a dozen shots and then landed. It was only after a visit to Fuel City for tacos that I realized my drone had beamed a single image back to my phone from that first ascent. Here it is.

Home Again
I love Dallas. I also love good Tex-Mex. According to official regulations, I consumed massive quantities of it within twenty-four hours of touching down at DFW. I’m not going to have anyone accusing me of being a scofflaw. [image captured by Daniel J. Hale on 20180317 with a DJI Mavic Air hovering over a deserted downtown Dallas, Texas].

“The Color of Money”
Back in the day … err … night, you could see the 72-story Bank of America Tower (left) from miles away because its corners and edges were lined with glowing green argon. Dallas’s tallest skyscraper is still lit up at night, but the lights are now LEDs, and they can shine a variety of colors. To the right, spanning the Trinity River, is the Margaret McDermott Bridge (“Small Marge” to the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge (a.k.a. “Large Marge”)). A bit back to the left, there’s Reunion Tower and the Hyatt Regency Dallas. [image captured by Daniel J. Hale on 20180401 with a DJI Mavic Air hovering in - this is important - Class G Airspace over a deserted downtown Dallas, Texas early on a Sunday morning].

“Prismatic”
The building on the left is my second-favorite skyscraper in the world. The green-glass-walled Fountain Place, completed in 1986, was designed by Henry N. Cobb, a partner of I. M. Pei. Because of the unusual faceting of its exterior, the building looks different from every viewing angle.

“Heart of the City”
When I was a kid growing up in rural Arkansas, my parents would sometimes take my siblings and me to Six Flags Over Texas. On the way to the park and back, we would pass downtown Dallas. The city was to me a fantastically bustling metropolis straight out of a movie. More than anything else, I loved seeing the glowing red Pegasus on its perch atop the Magnolia Building. Now, as an adult, I’m fortunate to call Dallas home, and for a number of years I was even lucky enough to live in a downtown loft with a great view of the flying horse. In this shot, the Pegasus is the red light atop the building in the background left of center, which is also reflected in the windows of the building just right of center.
