Bird’s Eye View of Charming Pasadena City Hall Provided by Drones
Pasadena City Hall is known for its historic charm and architectural beauty, but according to local photographer Philip Coombes, the typical view from Holly Street doesn’t even do it justice. Instead, he recommends the bird’s eye view.
“From the air it’s absolutely spectacular. When you are actually looking down on it, it looks like a villa in Florence, Italy,” Coombes said. “It’s such a different perspective, and things you can’t see or capture when you’re at eye level.”
Seen here is a drone’s view of Pasadena City Hall. Aerial photography has become more popular recently with many photographers taking to the skies using small unmanned aircraft for everything from real estate promotion to large event coverage to motion pictures. (Photo by Phil Coombes)
