Thanks! Yeah, I have seen quite a few shuttle and rocket launches from the front of my house. I only live 45 minutes from Kennedy Space Center. I have gone over for a few night launches and it's awesome.
It's funny you mention "straight up". I was thinking the same thing as I was watching it. Most of the time they curve off to the left (NE) as they are going up. I kind of wish this would have, as I think it would have added to the photo.
