Hello all. I am a newcomer to the CDSG Forum but have had a long casual interest in San Francisco's Coastal Defenses. It is a topic that nests well with my long standing pursuit of taking aerial photographs using kite-lofted cameras.



Battery Chamberlin, San Francisco

I have recently started a new, relatively informal project to document the current state of the Bay Area batteries and associated structures through low level aerial photographs. You can find sample photos and brief reports on my field trips at:

If you would like to know more about kite aerial photography you can check our discussion forum:

or to see the technique in action view the video linked at the top of this page:

I welcome any suggestions you might have regarding the project.

Cris Benton

Some excellent photos on your site. I'm used to either ortho-photos or ground based stuff, so the variety of angles here puts some of the locations in an interesting perspective. I love the shots of Battery Townsley. Really beautiful work.

Thanks for the heads-up about your project.
