Diminishing Distances #SkywatchFriday

There was a time when the world was flat. Or at least people thought the world was flat 

Just fancy that! 

Then soon they found the world was round 

And travelled on foot , then went on wheels as carts and trains and cars.

They went by sea on boats and ships 

And distances became smaller .

And now as I fly above the clouds

The distance becomes still smaller . 

I wonder if a time will come when we can think ourselves in another place 

And cross the distance 

In a moment! 

These were my thoughts as I captured the sky from somewhere over Europe. The sun was still rising while I had left my Mumbai night sky just a few hours earlier . 

And now with summer officially begun, the sky in Raritan is blue once more.

Sharing these skies with other bloggers at #SkywatchFriday

Have a nice weekend all!


A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!

    The concept of crossing distances in a moment reminds me of apparitions in Harry Potter. Something I have only fantasized about, but who knows, given the rapid advancement of technology, we can have our own version soon. 🙂

    One day, we’ll be ‘there’, I guess
    And it’s a must, nevertheless
    For way before the sun stop giving us light
    We should have found
    Our new home, no less 🙂

  5. This is totally new to me..never have seen someone take pictures from the plan..Nice idea 🙂
