Shuttle Discovery Rollout

The Space Shuttle Discovery is sitting on the launch pad for the very last time.  My good friend Rhonda Barczak and I made our way out to Kennedy Space Center in the pre-dawn hours to photograph Discovery just after it reached pad 39A.  It looked just amazing as the sun came up and began to slowly light up the sky.  Almost on command a few clouds began rolling through the background to add some dimension.
These images are part of a project for Lightspeed Media.  There is a Facebook page you can join that will keep you up to date on what we are doing:
Space Shuttle Project on Facebook
I was up since 3:30 in the morning this day, and we began photographing before the sun came up, so I think I look pretty OK here given the circumstances. As the day began to brighten a bit and we knew that we had the great images we were looking for, Rhonda took a few photos of me-
What I didn't know is that while I photographing the shuttle, I was being photographed by someone other than Rhonda.  My silhouette appeared in USA Today.  What I'm most impressed with is that my out-of-focus blurry body is easily identifiable.  I'll have a few more photos tomorrow with a good behind-the-scenes story.
