While attending the ProMedica Frogtown Regatta on Saturday to watch my friend Louie Thaman compete, I had the idea to use my Phantom 3 drone to capture the event from a different perspective.

When I arrived to the Maumee River in Downtown Toledo, I noticed the water was very green and dirty. There was weird green algae in the river, and it looked very bad and contaminated. I stood at the base of the Anthony Wayne Bridge and prepared my drone to fly so I could take photos showing the rowers cutting through the algae.

I have been working with drones for about two years. I bought my drone because I wanted to produce music videos, provide publicity for companies, and also shoot documentaries in my country of Guatemala.
