Ubiquitous Picture of an Aeroplane Wing

One of the great photographic cliches and like most cliches, it’s hard to resist.

Canon EOS 5 and Fujicolour C200.

    Well, I for one, love to see photos taken from aircraft – ubiquitous or not! Great shot.

    Can you recall where you were flying over?

    Yeah but it cant be helped right. I mean your stuck on the plane and you have to do something with your camera. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Absolutely right John Masters… I was on a plane flying back from Venice on 26th Dec ( I know just showing off ! ) sitting in the aisle seat. 2 youngish women ( strangers to me and each other) sitting between me and the window. The woman at the window fell asleep; she looked beautiful and serene in the light and I sooooo wanted to take a photograph but the woman sitting between us refused to sleep so I didn’t feel I could…a missed opportunity at every turn ๐Ÿ˜‰

        I was recently say next to an off duty Virgin air stewardess in full uniform. There was definitely a photo opportunity there but I bottled it. Instead I took some very black, under exposed pictures out of the window.

    Photographic cliche? I’m not a photographer (*but I want to be). It’s a splendid cliche. ๐Ÿ˜‰
