Sunset on a Wing
The setting sun casts cool shadows on the wing. An iPhone photo shot while flying somewhere over the Midwest above Lake Michigan on the return flight from a trip to my hometown. On the flight out of Boston a week earlier, we flew over Niagara Falls. Here’s how the falls looked from the plane:
The rapids on the Niagara River before the falls are easier to make out than the falls themselves. Lake Erie is in the background. In the cropped version of the same shot, below, you can clearly see the Horseshoe Falls and American Falls, the rapids above the falls, and the rapids and Niagara Gorge below the falls.
btw, the title of this post is taken from the album of the same name, which documented the 1982 European tour of The Durutti Column, Paul Haig, Richard Jobson and a couple other acts associated with Belgium label Les Disques du Crépuscule / Factory Benelux. Here’s the charming For Friends in Belgium by The Durutti Column from that release, which is a short sketch of a track written for the tour–subsequently fleshed out and recorded for DC’s Lotta Continua studio release–that went on to become a fairly well-known Durutti Column track, as DC tracks go. To my great surprise, the full track even appeared on the Washington Post website following the Brussels terrorist bombings in March. Peace.
