.Window Seat Views
July 2016 - January 2019
From my early childhood, I have always been an aviation geek. There is nothing more fascinating to me than a jetliner effortlessly defying gravity and lifting up from the ground. Even after so many times watching planes take off, it still amazes me. Airplane window seats also afford beautiful views of cities, landscapes, and sunsets. I've always been a window seat person, for the beauty of the world outside easily beats seamless aisle access. For many of the photos in this section, I did research beforehand on where to sit on the airplane to get optimal views.
