On a recent flight from Amsterdam to San Francisco, Flickr user Ettubrute noticed that the night lights from the cities were flowing beneath the clouds and making them glow in a spectacular and ethereal way: â€œIt was really seeing the impact of urban environments from a different perspective.â€
To capture and share this experience, he set up an improvised stabilizer mound out of bags, pillows and blankets for the camera to sit on, and took about three hours of photographs that he condensed into about a minute of time lapse video.
When I first heard about Kyla Ebbert, the woman who was kicked off of a Southwest flight for wearing clothing that was â€œtoo revealingâ€, I wanted to run a story about the fact that during her interview on The Today Show, you can clearly see quite a bit of Kyla when she shows off her outfit and then goes to sit down, indicating that Southwest might not have been too far off base with their request:
However, I decided not to cover the story because I figured that maybe it was just a bad camera angle; and besides, she did say â€œI was humiliated. I was embarrassed. I felt like everybody was staring at meâ€.
I can understand that. No one wants to be the focus of attention; Right?
Apparently Kyla and I have two different definitions of being the focus of attention, because her â€˜embarrassmentâ€™ has landed her in the latest issue of Playboy, showing off a little more than just her skirt:
In the article, she even goes so far as to say “I’ve wanted to do it since I turned 18.”
Wouldn’t that be at least a few years before her Southwest flight?
Thankfully, thereâ€™s at least one airline that is willing to fly Kyla to and from her photo shoots:
