I was driving home from town today and saw this blimp over the horizon.  The bad thing was that my camera and long lens were at home.  The good thing is that blimps aren’t too fast.  Anyway, I took a few shots for no particular reason.  Blimp photos from the ground tend to be unspectacular unless you’re close with just the right background which I wasn’t and it wasn’t.  The best photos I ever made were of the Goodyear blimp back in the early 70’s when I was able to photograph it up close while it was coming in for a landing.  I wonder what ever became of those negatives.  Anyway, I’ll have to check out local sports events in the next few days to see who is using the Direct TV blimp for aerial shots.
