As I scroll through the social medias, I see what you see; smiles, frowns, plates of food, mediocre photography. But when I come across any picture of clouds seen from above, with an airplane wing shining in cool, thin air… I stop and stare. No matter the quality of the camera or the skill of the photographer, an image captured while flying 7 miles high at 600 mph should never be overlooked. For tens of thousands of years this point of view was unattainable. It existed only within the realm of imagination, as a reflection in the eyes of the gods.

We live in privileged times.
