Bird's eye view of city


The Haverhill Gazette

---- — Here’s a view of Haverhill seldom seen.

The center of the city is seen in this aerial photograph. The photo was taken with a GoPro camera suspended from a parafoil kite flown from the Basiliere Bridge over the Merrimack River.

Kite Aerial Photography, a concept dating back to the 1880s, is an adventure photographer Mary Schwalm is working to expand upon in the digital age.
