And while we’re on the subject of awesome aerial photos, check out the Daily Overview.
The project, founded by NYC-based Benjamin Grant, was inspired by the Overview Effect:
This term refers to the sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole. They have the chance to appreciate our home in its entirety, to reflect on its beauty and its fragility all at once.
Grant strives to give viewers that same feeling by showcasing thought-provoking aerials of places around the world where people have affected the landscape.
The images are beautiful and often astounding—and they really do make you think. A few of my favorite recent images include the Istanbul Shipyard…
…Kuala Lumpur’s palm tree plantations…
…California’s Roseville Yard…
…and Lollapalooza in Chicago.
