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!
This week’s theme, i.e. Jubilant, made me think of my meeting with the author of House Of Cards, Mr. Michael Dobbs. He was ecstatic when I handed him his Emirates Airlines Festival of Literature t-shirt as a souvenir.
