    Hello all!

    NewB here so if I may, I'll briefly introduce myself. I've been into photography since I was eight years old and a pilot since I was 14. Putting these two things together has been a hoot!

    I fly for a living as a captain aboard a Gulfstream IV so I travel and I get some interesting opportunities to shoot up-close and personal stuff of the machines that make the world smaller for all of us.

    I'll leave it at that for now. Here's a shot I took in Guadalajara while waiting for the lavatory cart to show up to dump our toilet - not the nicest of thoughts - so I had some better ones. The finest windows in all of aviation reflecting one of the finest engines - a Rolls Royce of course.

    twozerowest,

    I really like this abstract. Nice composition. Dead on exposure. Nice imaging.

    Congrats on your vision.

    A terrific abstract quality - you obviously have a 'seeing eye'.

    Well done!

    Excellent capture - thanks for sharing that.
