Day 82: Another Perspective

Day 82: Another Perspective, originally uploaded by susanvg.

I flew from Toronto back to Montreal today on Porter airlines - in one of its turboprop planes. The sky was perfectly clear and the view to the ground was only obstructed by parts of the wing and propeller. The snow is receding quickly as the sun's rays get stronger. The ice on parts of the rivers and lakes is breaking up. This was taken close to Montreal. Looking down, you can see the patterns of city life - straight streets and houses lined up like soldiers. The river has a more organic shape, widening and narrowing along its path.

Views like this change your perspective and remind you to stand back and look at the bigger picture. So often we are involved in the little details of life, get bogged down in the daily trivialities and forget to focus on the big things that really count.


  1. I find aerial views like this one calming and reassuring - there is in fact order to this chaotic world we live in. Nice shot - clean window, no reflection, good detail!!!

  2. Your words are very wise...and your shot is fun to look at. Keep looking...see something new!

  3. Nice shot. And it looks like it was great weather for flying!
