"Seeing a plane parked at the gate, dwarfing luggage carts and mechanics, one is induced to feel surprise, overriding any scientific explanation, at how such a thing might move -- a few meters, let alone fly to Japan. Buildings, among the few man made structures of comparable size, do not prepare us for a plane's agility or self-possession.
There is a psychological pleasure in the take-off too, for the swiftness of a plane's ascent is an exemplary symbol of transformation. The display of power can inspire us to imagine analogous, DECISIVE shifts in our own lives; to imagine that we too might one day surge above much that had loomed over us.
The engines show none of the effort required to take us to this place. They hang in the inconceivable cold, patiently and invisibly powering the craft, their sole requests, that we do not walk on them and that we feed them "Oil only', a message for a forthcoming set of men in overalls, 4000 miles away and still asleep. **There is not much talk about the clouds visible up here. No one thinks it remarkable that somewhere above an ocean we flew past a vast white candy-floss island which would have made a perfect seat for an angel or even God himself in a painting by Piero della Francesca. In the cabin, no one stands up to announce with requisite emphasis that, out of the window, WE ARE FLYING OVER A CLOUD, a matter than would have detained Leonardo and Poussin, Claude and Constable." Alain De Botton

I believe documenting beautiful moments can increase their intensity and resolution and deepen their aesthetic impact upon us.
