JFK and beyond. April 30, 2012.
Photography as therapy. Great as it is to visit the world, traveling the first leg of 5,500 miles in a Boeing 777-300 ER (Extended Range) – 208 feet long with a 197-foot wingspan, capable of carrying 289 passengers 7,930 nautical miles going 564 miles per hour at 41,100 feet – generates waves of acrophobia leading up to and into flight. It’s helped to have done it for years, but the act of taking pictures provides a comforting illusion of taking control. And often results in beautiful imagery.
