Flying In

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 5 February 2019 in Transportation.

Our destination was Oakland but our approach from Seattle carried us right over San Francisco which is just across the bay, to the west of Oakland.
I was sitting just over the engine....

Almost always a pretty view coming into the Bay Area.

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire

The engine somehow ads a reality to the magic . .

@Ronnie 2¢: Always good to have a foreground element, you know! ... Perhaps if I had a bikini-clad model on the Engine..... oh well...!

Beautiful image that I appreciate. I have always liked take-offs and landings by plane.

I love aerial shots and this is a very good one. I like the moody cloud and sky detail above the city.

Fine aerial perspective. Always great to fly over a city as you approach the landing.
