Remark Photographer
9M-MPD (cn 25701/997) Wow, I was lucky to get this one! While taking a shot of a SQ74 just south of this location, an LAPD motorcycle officer stopped to see what I was doing. As we talked, I spotted "Hibiscus" on downwind. Boy did I get excited! I told the officer how rare it was for this plane to visit LAX and I would love to get a shot of it. Luckily I made it back to this location with one minute to spare. So here she is, crossing Sepulveda Blvd. with the In-N-Out and small park just across the street in the background.

Nice shot!

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 18, 2009:
This is brilliant!!! At dublin airport you don't need to worry about police because there's a carpark beside the main runway mostly used by planespotters. The only thing separating the cars and planes is a fence! I love this photo:-)

Very nice! its a unique place to get a picture.Its really nice that hibiscus is visiting LAX, she usually visits LHR.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun June 15, 2008:
In shots like these the registration under the wing really comes in handy! :P

A visitor from United States posted Sat February 9, 2008:
Really would love to see that airport with all of the spotting that it has! Great Photo!

A visitor from - posted Sat February 2, 2008:
The way the airplane is close to the ground and almost swooping like makes this photo great! love the angle also

A visitor from United States posted Sat November 3, 2007:
I didn't get that lucky at the Eppley parking garage. Instesd the cop told me he thought the airport authority wouldn't like me taking pictures. Hmph!

A visitor from Singapore posted Wed October 24, 2007:
Great job. Good composition!

A visitor from United States posted Fri July 13, 2007:
Fantastic story -- fantastic spot. I used to live in this neighborhood and I would sit at the In N Out across the street and watch the planes land every chance I got.

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 7, 2007:
Great position to juxtapose plane with ground scene.

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 30, 2007:
Nice anecdote, and great shot.

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 21, 2006:
Lucky Lucky shot! i hope you got paid for this one. it's great publicity for the airline and the 747 itself.

Interesting angle. Love the 747 and the 'hibiscus' colur scheme.

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Mon April 17, 2006:
This is my state national airline; Malaysia; Hibiscus is official flower of Malaysia. This schematic colour of this plane is newest layout for
Malaysia Airlines

A visitor from Canada posted Sun April 16, 2006:
Nice shot Paul, the wide angle lens keeps the viewer looking up and down. The port wingtip is immeadiately overhead yet the tree is at eye level. Almost a full 90 degree vertical field of view. Brilliant shot.

Martin, ScotlandOne.

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 24, 2006:
Picture perfect composition. The perspective really makes this shot. There's also the zig-zag effect of the street to the far wing to the near wing to the contrail overhead, which ties all the elements together. Good thing the policeman was understanding!

A visitor from South Africa posted Fri February 17, 2006:
An opportunity like this is a great Christmas present for any photographer. Nice to see the opportunity was well used!

A visitor from Malaysia posted Wed February 8, 2006:

A visitor from France posted Mon January 30, 2006:
Wonderful aircraft... I love "Hibiscus" c/s !
Thanks for this good shot

A visitor from Finland posted Sat January 28, 2006:
You certainly got everything right here! The composition is great, the colors are amazing, and the huge proportions of the plane compared to everything else add a nice surreal touch.
