Hey! Did you know that this photograph is featured in the brochure for an art college? I forget which one, but they sent me an information booklet with a huge poster of this photo. Thought you might want to know

Hey. This reminds me of a story.

There's a man named Pelle Sandstrak. He is a Swedish/Norwegian writer, actor and playwriter, and he also does stand-up and travels around and talks about the Tourettes syndrome, and growing up with Tourettes. He's had very strong Tourettes, leading to drug abuse, homelessness and such, but he is now much better.

The story, anyway, that this brings me to, is one from when he was still a kid going to school. He was living in a town where lots of planes passed, and he could hear them often going to and from school. So he developed this tic that everytime he would hear a plane coming, he would take off both his shoes, put them on the ground in front of him and spread the shoelaces to the sides as if they were wings of a plane. And then he would just stand there, with his shoes in front of him, until he could not hear the plane anymore.

This picture is almost like a sequel to that story, now that he's better. It's as if he's started taking his shoes off when hearing the plane, and then just went "hell with this, I've got other stuff to do", walking away, leaving his shoes. Despite the planes raining down, despite the resistance from his brain, telling him to stay and finish.

And that's why I find this beautiful. :)

He seems to be an awesome person, and he is strong enough to talk about his past in such an open way. You're welcome. :)

Very slick. You've got a great eye for setting these kinds of compositions up. Were you yourself throwing planes until you got one where you wanted it, or was there an unseen assistant?

It was a nuisance, did it myself, had to put the camera on a timer, run out with a paper plane, throw it, and hope it came into the shot just perfect. Took me something like 30 minutes until I finally felt I had one (which ended up being this one). Thanks again =]

I had a feeling it was like that. In that case, you get bonus points for this shot being a pain in the ass to get where you wanted it. :)

Wow, impressive shot!

All the right colors. I like the details, such as the dirtyness of the shoes, and the clear sky.
I'm not sure if I can find something wrong with this.
