Going places

“There is freedom waiting for you,
On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh but my darling,
What if you fly?”
― Erin Hanson

I got hooked into aerial photography in 2003 when our chopper flew into a sudden storm cloud in Banaue. We made an emergency landing on top of rice paddies in a terrace and met a chieftain in g-string with locals. The rest is history. Today, the girl who was once afraid of heights will fly anytime, anywhere to capture patterns from the skies.
