Spare a thought to the infinite space around us and the rarity of our existence. There is no known extraterrestrial life, intelligent or otherwise; we are but a speck of dust in this ever-expanding cosmos. Never will this thought hit you harder than when you’re flying thousands of feet above sea-level. Perspective changes everything; it humbles you like nothing else can.
These photos were taken while flying over Pakistan, Iran, UAE, Birmingham, and other places I can’t even remember. Enjoy!
You must have noticed a fairly significant drop in posts on this blog, and naturally so, because I was busy prepping for my upcoming UK trip. Unfortunately, the two-week vacation is now over and I’m back to my routine life. Having said that, I find solace in the fact that I have more than 3000 photos of the trip (which I still need to go through), capturing key moments in time that I can go back and relive.
This first of many albums that will be posted on this blog comes straight from the airplane window, and even though the sky was cloudy most of the way, I did manage to get my hands on a few decent shots. Given that it was my first experience of aerial photography, I’d say they came out alright.
Here are the best of the lot, taken over Pakistan, Iran, UAE, Birmingham, and other places I can’t even remember. Enjoy!
