“We swung over the hills and over the town and back again, and I saw how a man can be master of a craft, and how a craft can be master of an element.  I saw the alchemy of perspective reduce my world, and all my other life, to grains in a cup.  I learned to watch, to put my trust in other hands than mine.  And I learned to wander.  I learned what every dreaming child needs to know — that no horizon is so far that you cannot get above or beyond it.”

–Beryl Markham, West with the Night

  1. Did you use a fisheye lens for your i-phone or did you use a software tool to transform a photograph.
    However you did it – the result is strange and science fiction like! I like it very much!

    • Thank you, Stefan. I used the Fisheye Pro app for the iPhone. I’m glad you like it.

  2. That looks like one of the flir thermal imaging cameras that they have on helicopters. I like the quote very much!

  3. Cool … but what is it really? I like the Buck-Rogers-kinda-look. Nicely done. D

    • Hi, Dave. It’s an old airplane, with the propellor featured in the center (but with an off-center perspective). Glad you like it.

  4. I don’t have a clue what this object is. But, it works with the quote. Ah, “…to put trust in other hands than mine.”

    • It is a distorted view of an old airplane and its propellor.

  5. Fabulous vintage science fiction. It’s beautiful, but what on earth is it?

    • So happy you like it, Richard. It’s a distorted fisheye view of an old airplane and its propellor.

    Very steampunk. The sphere rose over the the remnants of Lost Vegas as the sepia shadows danced in defiance. 🙂
