Martha Stewart Is Into Drones

Martha Stewart loves “the possibilities and opportunities drones offer.”  On her blog, “Martha: Up Close and Personal” she wrote :

One of my security detail, Dominic Arena, recently purchased a DJI Phantom flying camera.  These drone-like, radio controlled aircraft are lots of fun to play with and they take extraordinary photos.  However,  controlling them takes practice and getting used to.  Since my farm has lots of open fields, Dominic thought it would be the best place to get acquainted with his new toy.  The results were amazing!  Browse through the photo gallery below and leave a comment.  I’d love to know what you think about the photos, but also what you think about drones and the various ways they can be used in the future!

The blog post was accompanied by a beautiful 31 photo slide show that is worth checking out , I’ve included just one of the great images below.

Stewart tweeted the link to the blog post and photos which were met with positive feedback from Twitter users.

In a follow-up tweet , Stewart wrote “We love the possibilities and opportunities drones offer. Do you?”

Then shortly after this post initially went up, Stewart added:

Somebody needs to include that blog post and those tweets in their comment on FAA regulations !

This is not Stewart’s first time praising drones, in an article in Vanity Fair earlier this year she talked about her Parrot AR 2.0 Power Edition drone. Here’s the bit on drones from Vanity Fair :

“It has a little camera. You connect it to your iPhone, and you can control it with your iPhone, and it flies all over my farm and takes pictures,” she said. “It takes wonderful aerial photographs.” The lifestyle queen says there have been no mishaps with the gadget; it has not scratched her car or broken a window. Although she admits she only uses it outdoors. “You can use it inside also, but I don’t, because it can bang into stuff.”

She makes sure that her farm animals don’t get spooked by the flying drone. “I keep it up pretty high,” Stewart explained. “And you can control the altitude, you can control the speed, you can control where it’s going. It’s easy to use, actually. You can really control it, it’s gentle. It’s lightweight, too; it’s very beautiful.”

A beautiful, fun toy.  Just be sure you’re using it for recreational, not commercial use Martha!  We wouldn’t want the FAA coming after you.

Scarlett Johansson has been keeping quiet lately. Like, for the past two months or so, she’s been able to step back in a big way. It’s nice.

But that doesn’t mean that ScarJo’s engagement to Romain Dauriac is any less shady, just that she’s not trying to convince us that this is the grandest love affair in the world or that they’re #initforlife. ...

This may be a controversial opinion, but I think that Vogue magazine’s heyday is far behind them. Their articles highlight the who’s who of nobody cares, and their style features are increasingly bizarre. But every so often even Anna “I’ve Had The Same Hair For 40 Years” Wintour gets something right, namely this month’s cover girl, Blake Lively. The notoriously private B opens up and admits that despite her lifestyle site, Preserve, not even being live yet, she’s already prepared for the ...
