Up and Away

So let’s say it’s three o’clock and the sun sets at five’n a half and I don’t particularly want to expend such daylight within my walls. To the Google Maps! An examination of these fair lands from the twinkling eye of a machinious photographer in orbit. All that recent talk of global logistics landed me in the pursuit of finding a good vantage of the evening airport.

So I get out to this expansive beach at low tide, perhaps a 20-minute swim to the airport’s shores (it’s on kind of a peninsula, highly secured except from daring swimmers). Suffice to say there’s little but sand and water, and of course wind. A brutal wind that has no-doubt caused an uptick in the rosiness of my cheeks due to my morning walk-commute into it.

I’ve only really shot in this style once, when I discovered it (for myself) in Cuba as a miffed-moody TA on a nature walk. It is the product of rippling water and sunlight. Little puddles and miniature streams over poor roads were my escape from the studentry, and it wasn’t long before I had forgotten them, mentally ensconsed in the mathematics of light and optics.

Thanks Google!
