Not sure what the orange is for. Pretty sure these trees are on the chipper list, cause hundreds of them are.

Eventually, Frisco will plant more…

How to Ask Our SFMTA to Not Give a Ticket for Excess Parking? – ONE SIMPLY TRICK! – Use an Orange Traffic Cone

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

I’ve seen this all over town:

Does it work?

IDK.

But the owner of this car is telling/asking PCOs to not get ticketed, either due to being an SFMTA employee, or some other SFGov employee or being a minimum wage contractor hired through The City or some Community Benefit District to sweep up the sidewalks, or having some color of authority…

And then, some more donuts:

As seen over the Financh:

I guess you throw in a little image stabilization and a soundtrack in post and then you’ve got yourself the opening scenes of your movie…

Click here to join in on the fun, and oh what’s this, a little dis on the competition:

These “discounted” rates have an inflated price to start with and are then supposedly “discounted”, so in the end, the rate is NOT discounted at all.If you are a photographer and considering helicopters, remember, small helicopters (R22) are “nervous” and wind affected, unstable and yes a little cheaper, but “not worth it” in the words of actual clients. Your safety is worth far more. Again, don’t get fooled by inexperienced flight schools filling downtime, or the cheaper and unstable “R22”, or even a “drone”, although their plenty of salesman out there selling their so called “service” the are usually incapable of delivering the broadcast quality shot you seek.

OK fine!

So yes, this chopper is big for a Robinson, but pretty small nevertheless. Keep a look out for the big boys when you’re up there…
