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.

Southwest South Dakota.  August 9, 2011.  “The Badlands were formed by the geologic forces of deposition and erosion.  Deposition of sediments began 69 million years ago when an ancient sea stretched across what is now the Great Plains.  After the sea retreated, successive land environments, including rivers and flood plains, continued to deposit sediments.  Although the major period of deposition ended 28 million years ago, significant erosion of the Badlands did not begin until a mere half a million years ago.  Erosion continues to carve the Badlands buttes today. Eventually, the Badlands will completely erode away.”  – National Park Service
