Falling Off the Horizon

Key West, Florida. I snapped a number of shots as the waters drew in the sun, and thought about the frame in the context of our planet as the round, orbiting sphere it is. I’ve taken more than a few shots from plane windows from such a perspective, and shifted the angle of my lens.

The result makes me think of long-ago perceptions that the earth was flat, and a sense that these boats and buoys could readily topple backward end over end, scattering off the edge of the horizon and out of this frame – leaving only the waters and the sky.
