i love these snapshots of various places on earth. it's such a great perspective to see things from above and how small and beautiful things can be. every time i am sad about something, i like to think of "the bigger picture" and the world and universe in general. it's a good way to snap out of it and realize how insignificant and unimportant your problems are when everything else is so much bigger than your existence.
these photos were taken by astronauts Soichi Noguchi and Douglas H. Wheelock. you can see more on their twitter pages.
(ps: this song, and the rest of the 'Au Revoir Taipei' soundtrack has been making me feel so much lighter. its a sweet and funny movie! i recommend it :-)
