Today? Not so much. Flying has gone mainstream. Despite moanings over high fuel costs, it's a relatively cheap way to travel long distances. The great unwashed, often wearing little more than flip flops and ripped t-shirts, have replaced formal-attired passengers. Getting to the plane is now a tension-filled nightmare of inhuman security gauntlets and surly "customer service". And once you get on-board, you run into doofs like this. Or this. Or worse.
But once you get past all the modern-day messiness of commercial aviation, it isn't that hard to get back to basics. Just you, a window, and a camera. Because the scenery that slips by can be ridiculously lovely. And you wouldn't want to be so ticked off by all it took to get you to this spot in the atmosphere that you couldn't be bothered to take it all in.
On this day, in this place, I was glad I did.
