Looking Down

Whenever I get the window seat while flying, I spend the entire time during takeoff and landing with my face pressed up against the window looking down. I love the opportunity to look at cities from an aerial perspective. Andy Tucker has a great set of aerial photos on his Flickr account. I’ve included a few from Minnesota here, but he has a collection from many other cities as well. Check out the rest right here.

    Ah, the Cedar Avenue bridge at Lake Nokomis. How I look forward to its removal.
