Good Morning, San Diego!

Video

My personal tribute to the beautiful city of San Diego (California, USA), where I’ve had the pleasure to live for almost 15 years. All the scenes in this video were captured around sunrise over a period of four months, from August to November of 2014.

Shot entirely using a GoPro HERO3 Black Edition camera (1080p, 60fps, Medium FOV) mounted on a DJI Phantom 2 Quadcopter with Zenmuse H3-3D 3-axis gimbal. Edited using Adobe Premiere Pro CS6.

This video was made solely for hobby and recreational purposes. Filming locations were researched and selected in July 2014 taking into account recreational flight safety guidelines reported in the news at the time.

More succinct guidelines were widely publicized later that year, including the “Know Before You Fly” educational campaign at knowbeforeyoufly.org that started in December 2014. Visit faa.gov/uas for the latest U.S. Federal regulations on unmanned aircraft systems. Please fly safely.

San Diego’s head librarian Misty Jones has a lot of numbers on her mind these days, and not just the Dewey Decimal System.

Residents just besieged branches to snap up 20,000 rapid covid tests, 174 of 600 library jobs are open and need filling, and patrons are eagerly checking out 2,000 portable Wi-Fi hotspots.

And then there are the statistics that reveal the size of the sprawling system that Jones oversees. Before the pandemic, the San Diego library system had the nation’s eighth-largest collection and ninth-largest number of visitors despite being one of the least-funded of the top 25 libraries in the U.S.
