Ever since I was a little boy I've wanted to fly. It's all I would ever think about as a child. Just imagining how life would be if I could actually fly. If I could float above the world, glide through the clouds, go anywhere I wanted on earth and just love every moment of it.
For me, even today, to be able to fly is just the ultimate dream. To be able to see the world from above, to observe the movements of people, of nature, of life. It's an incredible thought. To see everything from that perspective and appreciate the true beauty of creation that much more...
I wish I could fly. But of course that's not the reality.
As I really started to become more passionate about taking photos I learnt that there were such things as drones that you can use for photography. Fairly soon after that I spent quite a lot of money to buy one. I just thought to myself that this will probably be the closest thing I'll ever get to actually flying myself. So now every time I fly the drone, I just imagine it's me up there.
And the photos I take mean a lot to me. They represent the dream, they show me how beautiful it is to look down from the sky, they give us a glimpse of what it would feel like... if we could fly.
