I was asked to use a very specific back drop for the scene, which was the real challenge here. It was pretty impossible to find an image of the Cleveland Soldier Memorial with the terminal tower in the back ground from the angle that I needed. For one the angle needed to be low to ground so that I could get the top of the tower in the image. I also needed to see the back of one of the four sculptures that make up the memorial and who takes pictures of the back end of sculptures? No one, that's who.
That's when I hit on the idea of using google street view. This worked amazingly well as I virtually walked around the memorial until I got to the angle that best featured the Memorial and tower. Its an amazing world
