“I heard an airplane passing overhead. I wished I was on it.”
― Charles Bukowski
Stretch, stretch, pretty wings,
It’s a special day;
Soon they will be strong enough
For me to fly away.
Both optimists and pessimists contribute to the society. The optimist invents the aeroplane, the pessimist the parachute.
— George Bernard Shaw
Lovers of air travel find it exhilarating to hang poised between the illusion of immortality and the fact of death. ~Alexander Chase, “Perspectives,” 1966
PS: All photographs taken in Kew Gardens during my last visit to London. I love looking up at these airplanes/helicopters flying.
When we went to Glendalough we walked to the 2nd lake which is the larger one. After the long walk, we decided to rest for a while in those lush green grass. I love grasses, walking on them, lying down on them and looking up at the sky. So there we were lying down on the grass, taking a break when I wondered if I could capture the place upside down. So I clicked this one.
Once I got that then I started to watch the clouds pass by. It was a fairly good day there. No rains, sun shining bright. I thought this particular movement of the clouds looked like the skeletal remains of a huge animal like Dinosaur or a Dragon. What do you think.
Speaking of Looking up, here is another one. This looks like a glass floor doesn’t?
But actually it is the reflection of the glass floor in the mirror placed on the roof. Here is a clear view of that. When I looked up, I felt a little loopy. Oh, yeah forgot to tell you the place. This is a section of the Tower Bridge.
