Gravity and weightlessness are things I just don’t understand very well but I am left in awe of the end results.
I took this photo from the window seat on a recent flight. I love clouds and being above the clouds in a plane gives them a whole new perspective. I usually stand on the ground looking up and marvelling at the shapes, the colours, the floatiness and the patterns they make up there in the sky.
The shadow that this cloud left on the ground below intrigued me and I think it came out much clearer when I turned it into black and white.
(Does it look a bit like a computer game character to you, I’m thinking pacman?)
I love flying but I admit to wondering how on earth those big heavy planes even manage to get off the ground.
This week, share a photo of something marked by its weight — or its air of weightlessness. Show us gravity at its most unforgiving, or most generous. Bricks or feathers. A collapsed ruin or a plane taking off. A heavy piece of old furniture or the flying buttresses of a cathedral. Keep in mind that weight doesn’t even have to be physical: emotions and memories can weigh on us (or lift our spirits) at least as much as real objects.
Here’s a link to see how others have interpreted the theme Weight(less).
