Southeast City Aerials

Got 'em? Post 'em!


I love the way aerials give a great view of the scope and layout of cities so I compiled a thread of aerial photos of southern cities most of them from flickr. (Notice I said southern rather than southeast since Texas is nowhere near the southeast). Some pics are better than others obvioulsy. Feel free to add more.

Austin - shmat


Birmingham - CP



Jacksonvile


Oklahoma City - KaptainKrispyKreme


Charlotte


Memphis


Tampa


Atlanta - Philipshone photography


Dallas - KaptainKrispyKreme


Houston - shmat



Miami

Houston - shmat



I'm v impressed with the density in Houston. It's not Chicago or NYC but it's more dense than LA. Would you say Houston has the greatest density of skyscrapers outside Chicago and NYC in the USA (maybe North America because it actually looks denser than Toronto from these pics)?

I've been to NYC (several times), Chicago and Toronto but not Houston. What is there for the tourist in Houston?

I have never been to Houston, but the density of its skyline is amazing. Nice to see that they have maintained some older buildings, too. Certainly a very powerful image for any city.

I love the shot of Dallas. You can see what look's like swamps near the downtown. It's very cool.

Those really are impressive shots of DT Houston. But I actually think DT Houston and LA are quite similar only that the average height in Houston is probably greater. Notice that in the second pic, many of the buildings in the foreground are actually midrises and I've seen LA pics that look amazingly similar. Also San Francisco is probably as dense.


Great Birmingham and Jacksonville shots!

Nope; I'd give that honor to San Francisco:






I've always been impressed by this aerial of Jacksonville:




This is an older aerial shot of Columbia:



And these are a few Columbia aerials from the Five Points neighborhood:

Those are kick-ass aerials!! Houston is quite dense and Jacksonville is less dense than it looks from grade level. Birmingham is quite the spread....Austin is getting packed in there. Lets see some more!!!
