Conquerors of the Sky

Always driven by the desire to conquer the sky, it took thousands of years for the human race to turn their dreams to fly into reality. At first, flying like a bird was nothing but a pipe dream, however in 15th century Leonardo Da Vinci made the first steps to design a flying machine and at the very beginning of the 20th century two brothers Orville and Wilbur Wrights built and successfully flew the first flying apparatus, called Flyer. The dream came true. Air, the only environment previously unreachable for humans, was conquered. Indeed, all the people are dreamers, but some of them are really stubborn, when it comes to realization of their dreams. Often when they finally reach the goal, their achievements are capable of changing the entire world…

With this planes and helicopters photography showcase, we invite you to the amazing world of dreamers, the world, which proves that there are no unachievable goals and impossible dreams, as Ozzy Osbourne sang. Aviation is the name of this world, and helicopters, twin pistons, jets, airliners, and turboprops are just a few examples of flying machines, which exist today. Aircrafts photography is an amazing thing – it is the demonstration of power and speed, technical perfection and even certain hi-tech aesthetics. Today a plane, which is actually nothing but tons of metal, stuffed with highly intelligent electronics, and controlled by a human, is capable of reaching the heights, unreachable for birds or any other living beings on Earth. Isn’t it the best manifestation of the fact that every human dream can be turned into reality? Sometimes we just need some time to do this…

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
