these photos show the isle of wight from my plane window, taken on my phone. my family have a joke about the isle of wight (my mum once ‘accidentally’ took my brother there) so i took the pictures to send to them but couldn’t help realising how spectacular this view was. it was such a cloudless day, and when i realised what i was seeing was the whole island, i was struck by a rare kind of wonder. i don’t know why, but i just found looking down on this silly little parallelogram of a place so incredible. as we flew over the western tip, i could see the needles, white and tiny in the ocean. i’ve been to the isle of wight, i did a project on it in year six at school, and seeing it laid out like a map underneath me was simultaneously disorientating and magical. we are all very small, really.

these shells (conchas) mark the route of the ‘camino de santiago’, a famous route of pilgramage that passes through leon. they also led to the house i stayed at, which was handy.
