For me, setting goals or having something to work to is important. Even while I'm trying to hit Executive Platinum status this year, I'm also trying to visit all of the continents of the world. In the US my goal is to hit all 50 states, only 6 to go! While traveling abroad, I bring home post cards from across the world to write to my niece for when she grows up. I like to have projects and little things to do in order to continue to drive me forward.
Another project has been in the works over the past year or so as I begin to fly more and more. Personally, I see the best seat on a plane to be the window seats. I always want to be able to look out the window at the sky, or the wing, or anything assuming I'm not bothering other passengers. Take off and landing are of particular interest to me, as that's when you see the ground the most and the most amount of action is going on outside the window.
I thought it would be a fun project to start to document all my flights so that one day I could go back through and make a video or some kind of collage of a majority of the flights I've taken over the years of flying. In comes Project: Over The Wing. Every time I can get a good photo out the window of an airplane, I do so during takeoff, landing, and if there something really awesome during cruise, I'll take one then too. Eventually I'll compile them all into a piece of art in some way commemorating my flights.
For now, enjoy some of the fruits of my labor up until today, I hope you like looking through them as much as I enjoy them.
