A photographer takes pictures of the world and often goes back at a later time because he wants to see how the world has changed. He seeks out angles which make the disgusting and monotonous nature of the world seem fresh and worthwhile. This particular photographer is at the center of a revolution as he witnesses human beings take flight without any aid and soar above his head. You would think he would jump at this opportunity to take a photo and become famous and rich, but why would he care. People are flying unassisted and if that is any indication of the progression ahead for the world he would do well to smash the ever living hell out of the machine that created a false ideal world. The real thing was happening right before his eyes. He did not attempt to fly or even think about the process, that all did not matter. What mattered is that someone up there slapped the earth off axis because he or she or it was through with the dismally submissive hole earths inhabitants have dug themselves into. Things were no longer going according to plan, and this once photographer realized for the first time in his life he was no longer looking through the lens of his camera, but through his own eyes and his own body.
