    Story 1

    This one falls in the, “I wish I could have taken it” category. It just exudes the feeling of free flight. The combination of close proximity with the trees below and the fish eye distortion created perspective lines that just drops you into the Matrix. And having the colorful paraglider placed right in the middle of the forest clearing is a real bonus. I hope you landed safely. -B. Yen
