“The Flight challenge came when I was up in Whistler, Canada. I wanted to go after skiers and snowboards on jumps, but the opportunity didn’t present itself. I took this selfie using a remote shutter in my left hand and about 50 attempts of throwing a paper plane at my camera on a tripod.” –B

Great minds think alike…

I needed to take advantage of my view from the street in front of my apartment, and decided that I wanted to use a paper airplane to emulate a plane flying over the city. As you can see…it didn’t quite work out the way I wanted it to! It was extremely windy and I had to take about 30 shots on my phone with my roommate holding the strings I sewed onto the plane. She got cold while sticking her arm out over the highway for such a long time and gave up so I ended up hanging it on the tree by the corner. Even though the photo doesn’t meet the idealized version in my head, I kind of like the “arts & crafts” look of this photo.

Brent has decided to read my mind and chose a topic I planned on proposing…

Reflection.

I hope it rains in the next week.
