Drone-powered aerial photography has a bad reputation thanks to drones with guns, but it’s not always death and destruction. Flying robots have been capturing some amazing photography from above and now they have a home at Dronestagr.am. Not all of the photos are taken by “drones” so even if you have a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) or even a kite with a camera attachment you can share your photos at Dronstagr.am.
The photos are stunning – once I stopped caring about privacy issues, it was easy to take a ten minute aerial vacation over Vancia, France over to the Kintzheim over to the beautiful Coco Palm Bodu Hithi in the Maldives. A search on the public site showed zero results for Fan Francisco – a place I know that is teeming with professional and amateur drone builders. There’s even a drone store on my block! Evidently there are few San Franciscans willing to be social with their drone photos.
