SXM Photo?

Sun Oct 10, 2004 8:34 pm

The aircraft is in your face, but the people on the beach are so far away. What are they looking at? The beautiful cloud?

The plane is flying over the people. The plane is huge. It's an illusion.

They are looking at the model/actress Paris Hilton who you can clearly see at lower left (on the roof of the hotel)

Glad you liked my photo.

Mark was right! It was Paris! And I even photographed her around 10min later.

Haha, love that shot Colin - also love the rest of the shots in your gallery, especially the one from Roskilde Festival. Very easy to see where people were walking!  Laugh out loud

Our maintenance base (I was working there as always) was actually just south of that shot, but I can recognize at least one place I got tired of visiting  Insane - I found a shot of me in front at one of the concerts and stuck it in my profile should anyone care what Roskilde Festival looks like at ground level  Laugh out loud

With such a serious wideangle on the camera, the wing must have passed over your head Colin.  Smile Great shot.

It is not that I do not like the photo, it is just that it defies logic to my mind's eye. Hope you see my point.

Hello Colin,

My wife and girlfriend were dumbfounded when I showed them this shot on MAHO in September.
I expect at least 6 CARIBS if I see you at SUNSET in the future.
