  2. My opinion is mitigated. To me drones are a wonderful newish tool to show us the most spectacular aspects of our world, on the other hand I feel that it makes the ‘job’ and joy of a photographer near impossible, as you can never go as close or as far away of your subject as a human being. When I now see a photo I adore I often find it’s a drone shot. Coooool, yes, specacular, yesssss, unusual, sure….. but I miss the human touch.

    Apart from that I know quite a few people who would gladly have this ‘poster’ on their wall…. That’s fine by me 😉

  5. Admittedly a neat photo (made me think of an EKG), but Kiki’s observation stopped me cold. So spot on. For all the good that it does, technology is also removing us from contact with our world and one another in a very disturbing way….

  6. My first evoked a Wow! Amazing shot. The I realized it was a drone shot and read Kiki’s comment and the string that followed — sand camels replace “sand castles”. We want to see everything from “above” while our feet are on the ground…or riding on the camels. Technology only asks one question: “How?” Only we, the camel-riders, can ask the question “Why?” Amazing photo nonetheless. Thank you, David.

    • Gordon, you are absolutely right. As so often, what we see/perceive/observe is swiftly forming our opinion, making them Facts… and see where it has got us…. Less and less room is left for dreams, we get instant ‘satisfaction’ instead of Material to ‘work with’, to build a View with a Room… etc.

      • Thank you, Kiki. The premise behind “Be Still! Departure from Collective Madness” is that there is only one sin: exceptionalism that manifests itself in species, racial, national, cultural, and religious claims that we, homo sapiens, are the only part of Nature that is not dust. If you don’t know the book, you might find it of interest. Thanks again, for your comments here on David’s wonderful blog.

  14. the drone photography in general is stunning esp. with the photos of remote mountaintops and far out into the ocean gifting us with vistas we’d otherwise never see, though to me it takes the joy & adventure out of a person’s communing w/nature & the achievement of capturing a moment…/// we thought it rude when we went to a glorious waterfall only to discover an out of state pro photography (plastered on his van) with his drone hogging the Vista!!! back and forth up and down, making it impossible for anyone else to enjoy the waterfall or take a photo…he was taking advantage, invasively and pimping nature, for his gain, imho when most pro photographers work hard to get to a location, wait for the proper lighting or a a bird to take flight…and they create…

  15. this image shows there is an advantage to travel in a line and in a group/// from a design standpoint I can imagine rotating the photo the camels become large beads and their shadows dangling tied silk fabric or perhaps felted and shaped yarns of wool -string those along the line of a curtain rod and it is now a valance…in a boho designed room…
