    Wow! Had my doubts this one in particular would ever show up in the US. And here it is at LAX.

    I think those are very good spots, with only one problem. I believe you'd be against the sun to some extent, so you'd be faced with a backlit shot. But this won't be much different than Bayswater or...

    One could stand along the New Jersey side of the Hudson, more or less across from the Intrepid and Cruise Ships. It is quite elevated over there - basically atop a cliff. There's been a photo...
