Up in the Air

If you have seen the George Clooney starrer by the same name, you would understand why I selected the name for this post…In the months of July and August, I was up there in the clouds more times than I care for.  If you have seen the movie, you would remember that George Clooney’s character had a similar work schedule. So, I could really relate to the situation.

These shots were taken while I was returning from one such trip to Guwahati. I always had the (wrong) impression that taking photographs on flight was not permitted, so, it was with much diffidence that I asked the air-hostess for permission to take out my camera, and she was absolutely prompt in providing her stamp of approval! These are some of the shots.. Btw, the river in the shots is the mighty Brahmaputra…Hope you like them!

I intend to follow up with some more posts from my visits to the North-Eastern part of India, which I believe, is breathtakingly beautiful, and sadly under-appreciated. I love going back to that part of the world.

I have recently created a Facebook page, by the same name. If you feel like it and wish to follow my photographs on FB, do “like” the page: https://www.facebook.com/knowallsbox 🙂

  1. I love shooting photos out the window when I fly. I probably have tons of cloud-porn photos stuffed away at hard disks somewhere!
    Would have loved to see the North Eastern parts of India – unfortunately I didn’t see it when I was there.

    • Thank you Elizabeth! Even I prefer travelling by train to flying…but, it helps save time…and occasionally the view takes your breath away! 🙂
      Happy holidays to you and your loved ones! 🙂

  2. Good for you. It has never occurred to me to take my camera out and not for the fear of flying. I love the pictures – WOW – sadly I will not be able to like you on fb – I am not over there 😉

    • Thank you Paula!! This post is testimony to the fact that timing is very important in photography..i booked the right flight, to get the sun going down! 🙂 And no worries about “liking” my FB page..I am sure you “like” me on WordPress!!
