747-400 landing at Kai Tak. (I dragged my wife on the subway and a long walk to find the right spot for this shot. I had to brace myself against a fence in the middle of a busy road with the camera pressed against my eye, waiting for the right moment. Hope you like it.)

People don't even care, as if it was normal to have a 747 200 feet above your head.

Photo taken at exactly the right instant. framing is perfect and the pedestrians seem completely oblivious to the aircraft. this shot could be called "just another day in kowloon"
