Progress flies

Progress flies

I have a facination with planes that fly overhead. To me, airplanes represent how progress flies; progress being a term used for advancement and flying referring to crashing because the nose of the plane is angled towards earth in the photo (apologies to pilots, I am not critiquing your aviation skills!). Although human progress is a positive thing, I think that, in some ways, we have gone backwards in the commercialization of land, sea and even the sky. Progress is fleeting and waits for no one, but humans have the final word. Our choices are the engine echoes that reverberate through the atmosphere long after the plane has vanished.
