I am drawn to airplanes, whether it's in life, or in art. They contain within them the potential for such a wide gamut of experience: reunion, new beginnings, violence, and so much more. Where are they going, who are they meeting, are they going home, going on an adventure, visiting relatives they resent, seeing a long lost love?
Saw a post for a new book from Josef Hoflehner on www.notcot.org: http://www.rachelhulin.com/blog/2009/10/on-the-docket-planes-and-lips.html
I took these pictures in Chicago last week.
This last one is especially cool because it was taken from our architectural boat tour of the Chicago River. The tour guide had just pointed out this building as the Boeing building, and I noticed a plane... I wonder if its a Boeing plane?
