I’ve been sitting here watching the sun sink below the horizon and it struck me that we’ve done a travel theme for “Above” but have neglected to look at things from the opposite point of view, so here, without further adieu, are a few of my travel shots that put me in mind of down under. Autumn in Staten Island parks is a gorgeous affair, and here I was trying to put myself in a squirrel’s shoes (or rather furry feet) by trying to photograph a squirrel’s world view.
Still on Staten Island, at the Snug Harbor Botanical Garden, I’m pretty sure this little guy was trying to do the same thing to me.
Christmas in Seattle never disappoints, and it’s hard not to get in the holiday spirit when you stand gazing up in awe at the massive tree in Westlake Center.
One of my favourite things about flying is pushing my nose up against the window and watching the world pass by below. Here are the snow-capped peaks of the Alps on the way to Rome last year.

It is better to have your head in the clouds, and know where you are… than to breathe the clearer atmosphere below them , and think that you are in paradise. – Henry David Thoreau
Through pride we are ever deceiving ourselves. But deep down below the surface of the average conscience, a still, small voice says to us, something is out of tune.
