Alex S. MacLean, Aerial Photographer

I think you would agree that aerial photos are pretty rad. They’re a pretty niche area of photography, I mean, how people own a plane and super fancy camera? Well Alex S. MacLean does and he takes some damn fine photos as well. I was really taken by the more abstract ones that you see above.

The first image is obviously some kind of theme park, but from above it’s kind of a psychedelic explosion. The second image are actually a pair of unmarked tennis courts but are completely unidentifiable. If I didn’t know this was an aerial photo I would think it was some kind of abstract painting. It’s pretty clear that the last two photos are random crops, but the colors of the third one and the geometry of the fourth one really get me excited.
