  4. I love the color and the light of this shot. The composition is also really good – especially given you were limited to your seat. :) Fun interpretation of the theme. Thanks, Frizz.

  17. Hallo

    Ich bin KnowledgeKnut und ich habe bemerkt, dass Sie meinem Blog folgen. Ich habe 5 Jahre des Deutsch in Sekundärschule gedauert. Ich möchte die Gelegenheit haben, mit jemandem zu üben. Denken Sie, dass das möglich wäre?

    Vielen Dank
    p.s. I have to admit, most of this was done with the help of a translation site!

  18. Just wondering, was that your assigned seat on the plane and did you ask for that spot? Or did you borrow it for a few moments from another passenger? Great shot!

  26. That’s a great idea! I used to love to sit by the window as well…but now I have kids and they ALWAYS claim the window seats when we fly!

    I am really impressed, your photos are gorgeous. I have never gotten photos through those thick windows to look that beautiful! They’re both gorgeous but that second one is amazing. It’s so clear!

    Do you have these displayed anywhere as a collection? It would be amazing to see all of them one after another…or side-by-side. :)

  27. One more thing–your guitar playing is wonderful. I could listen all day. Have you ever thought of trying Hawaiian-style slack key? That’s some of my favorite music and your playing sounds like you could play it beautifully. Just a thought!

  32. Absolutely beautiful photos! So crisp. I’d like to have the courage to learn how to fly an airplane so I can go up in the clouds anytime. I truly enjoy looking at the clouds. :)

  34. Oh my, these photos are splendid, crisp, beautiful. They make me want to head out on a flight. 500 miles takes me back to my HS years—sitting around with my friends and playing guitars and singing. thanks so much for sharing your heart and soul with us through your photos and music.
