What would Carmi shoot?

Bang bang or click click
I love the grey and blue
then the contrast of soft floating clouds
and a hard steel turbine, cutting through the endless sky.
Its still a marvel to me: Flying! Posted by Picasa

I have to tell you, jet engines are one of my favorite subjects for pictures... I guess I just love the thought of being in a plane and flying!

What I love about flying is looking out the window and becoming mesmerised by the clouds, they completely fascinate me...even when I was a small child..a very long time ago..I would imagine being on them jumping from cloud to cloud,not falling through them, feeling safe...

I love this picture. There is nothing like flying and looking out the window and seeing the tops of the clouds.

The pic does reek of a "Carmi effect"

You are all TOO nice!

Truth be told, this is EXACTLY what I would shoot. As I read David's entry and your comments, I could almost feel myself sitting in a plane doing and thinking precisely the same thing.

I always ask for a window seat. I always sit there, camera in hand, and ponder the magic of where I am. To not capture it in some way would be a travesty.

Love this shot, both for the technical goodness of its capture, and for the way it makes me feel.

Thanks so much...this is lovely!
