I came there at early morning, because on previous day arrival estimate was "mid morning". Since 9 AM for me is late morning I decided to show up early to not miss fly-by anyhow.

Early morning wait:

Event started for us suddenly, because Boeing 737 with Discovery attached emerged behind Arlington Buildings.

Pilots of Boeing 747 did 3 loops over Metro DC, everey time returning using same route.

Whole croud of photographers ran out from under the trees to get better view of shuttle:

The end.

Person is taking photos, not camera. When photograph is bad, it's because photographer doesn't know how to choose settings optimal to "own preferences". Then blames camera for bad IQ.
This is same as blaming car about arriving to wrong destination.
