bird’s eye view

Post image for bird’s eye view

i am absolutely terrified of flying, but at the same time i am completely fascinated with looking down at the ground from an airplane. i have literally spent entire flights back and forth between philly and california watching the ground below and occasionally taking pictures. where i’m going with this…is that i think that’s why i’m so drawn to these photos by this series of photos by alex maclean called “patterns.”

Thats so cool! I love looking at things from waaaay high above. I love high altitudes–the adrenaline is consuming. :D

I actually did this for a photo project on film once! Only on a miniature scale, I don’t have access to a plane….
