This is an Image from South Padre Island, Texas. I shot my brother and friend as the want up some stairs to leave a parking garage to go to the beach. I saw that there was an airplane soaring high above leaving the contrail behind. It seemed funny to me that people were so far above ignored by most of us below, sipping their drinks, eating their peanuts, and resting on their trip to and from wherever. It was funny that that little line in the sky was the mark of some flying humans. The print itself turned out to be very colorful. And I especially enjoy the black stark sky against the textured walls.
