See aerial photos of the landslide scene after part of 26th Street in Charles Village collapsed onto a CSX railroad track Wednesday following heavy rains. About 20 Charles Village residents face up to 40 days away from their homes while city engineers assess the stability of the area. These photos were taken Thursday by Baltimore photography duo Belinda and Terry Kilby of Elevated Element.
Baltimore aerial photography
Elevated Element, Baltimore’s pioneering drone photography duo, is flying high. Terry and Belinda Kilby — the husband and wife team behind some of the most breathtaking and unique aerial images of Baltimore and the surrounding region — have released their first book (Drone Art: Baltimore) just as an art exhibit showcasing their work opened high above the Inner Harbor, at the World Trade Center’s Top of the World observation level.
The Kilbys, who actually design and build the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) they use in their photography, shared some of their images with The Darkroom and recently took part in a wide-ranging Q&A on their techniques, equipment, what it’s like to be contacted by the FBI and much more.
The first in our series taking readers behind the scenes of Maryland places features Baltimore’s iconic Domino Sugars sign. Watch the sun set over Baltimore in a time lapse video, view the sign from angles only the birds — and a select few people — can see, and take in the city, for the first time, from one of its most famous backdrops.
