Looking down from Space...

Hello. I hope you had a nice weekend and are having a great week. I'm still getting back into the groove after a long break and all that comes with that. Aerial photography is some of my favorite, and from space, could it get any better? These unbelievable photos by AndrĂ© Kuipers (ESA/NASA) are jaw-dropping, I'm in awe. Mac and I were just talking about Astronauts and how surreal it would be to look down at earth and see such amazing things like this!

These are kind of beautiful but also kind of terrifying. (I have a weird fear of earthly textures... sh, don't tell.) But I love the Paris & Russia ones.

I love these. The patterns. Like savant finger-paintings.

Great blog! Photos from space are so beautiful and fascinating but I'd probably be too scared to go there, even if I had a chance ;)
I love the photo of Sahara, amazing colors.

These are incredible. I forget how vast and beautiful the world is and how small I am in comparison sometimes.
