Nose of the Queen
A rare view of the nose of the Boeing 747.
When I see the curved cockpit windows from this angle, I cannot help but imagine the surreal flow of arctic cold air that flows by in flight.
And behind those two big windscreens are two human beings, looking out or, in my case, taking a few pictures of the world.
They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. In this case, the windows are a view to the beauty of the world from above, for the few souls who can sit behind them.
The windows to a world that only came in view since roughly a hundred years. A beautiful strange world that was hidden from view for countless of generations of human beings. I feel privileged to be one of those few people who can sit there and appreciate the world as it glides by.
