I've been watching planes fly over head, leaving vapour trails in their wake, and fantasising about where they are going or where they have been.
In another lifetime I would fly quite frequently, every couple of months, and loved the excitement and thrill of soaring through the sky. I would look out the window and admire the tops of the clouds, their magical landscape. Occasionally I would catch a glimpse of the land or sea beneath, putting into perpsective the fragility of a lump of metal thousands of feet above, and the minutia of people compared to the earths mass. We are but a speck.
Looking up at the planes, they themselves disappear into nothing more than a speck.
I wonder where they are going. And will I get a postcard.

Gorgeous. Love vapour trails!ReplyDelete
Lovely photo, my son loves seeing the vapour trails although he thinks all the planes are called Jeremy (as in Thomas the tank engine) and they all go to England!ReplyDelete
Never thought of putting up vapour trail pictures (got a few of those). These are lovely though.ReplyDelete
So evocative, lovely photo.ReplyDelete
There's such a strong sense of narrative to your photos and this one is no exception. Love it.ReplyDelete
Great post and photo. So evocative.ReplyDelete
Love the photographs and your words. I am like a child in awe whenever I watch a plane - never ceases to amaze me the wonder of air travel and how it's changed the way we live.ReplyDelete
Beautiful capture :)ReplyDelete
I often wonder where the planes are going too and wishing it was me on-board heading to somewhere tropical. Lovely pic xReplyDelete
I love watching planes in the sky. I often wonder where it is they're going to and why. Beautiful picture.ReplyDelete
I love how they leave the trail behind them..and I usally want to be on the flight too!ReplyDelete
Lovely and vibrant. My mum says it must be Summer when you can see people going on holiday!ReplyDelete
Oh I love this photo. You are clever. I used to think vapour trails were from rockets when I was little. Postcards from space?ReplyDelete
Great photo, watching planes..I always wonder tooReplyDelete
I love watching vapour trails aswell, and watching them slowly evapourate.ReplyDelete
