Thank you for the link, which took me straight there!

Great photos :) ...

Now, who is Jonathan Atkin? Is he a Cunard photographer? Some of the pictures look remarkably similar to official photographs I have seen, and they look as though taken from a helicopter.

There is a page on Jonathan's site dedicated to who he is here:

It would suggest that he has taken these photos on behalf of a client, be that Cunard or NY Port Authority.

This was one of two helicopters that followed us..
I suspect he was in this one..it got closest to us .This particular view they paused there, no doubt taking in the spectacular and rare view of QE2. For what its worth I had my pride flag hanging over the edge...
