Back when I was a kid I really wanted to be pilot and despite never letting that dream stick around long enough I still occasionally find myself daydreaming about aviation and the chance of seeing the world from a completely different angle. That’s the reason why I love the work of renowned aerial photographer Alex MacLean. He captures stunning images of the world below him and shows all the quirks, beauty and splender that exists within both the natural and manmade landscape of the planet.
MacLean has flown all across America and to many other parts of the world in his Cessna 182, each time taking incredible photos. The images above come from his book Las Vegas/Venice: Endangered Myths. It’s a book which deals with the similarities that exist between the two cities – highlighting their dependancy on water, their extreme physical environments and their status as major tourist attractions. It sounds like a fascinating collection of images and many of them can be viewed on MacLean’s site here.
