I had a bit of a problem with this title! Haven't been near a plane for a long time, and certainly have no photos! All my bird photos are either pretty poor, or the bird is sitting there, or both. Mainly both.

So then I had inspiration!

Well, they are flying, aren't they?! They are actually a mobile, made of wood, which we found in Greece somewhere, many years ago. Mr.G being a planemaniac (only don't say I said so!) bought it, and it hangs from the ceiling of "his" room. Probably gathering dust, but who am I to break the thing trying to dust it??

ts rather nice, though, isn't it?

To see other interpretations of FLY go to Carmi's Challenge

With Carmi's Challenge to find photographs of Rectangles in mind

I found the steps of a step ladder folded up neatly in my office........

Fish boxes piled up on the quay at Cobh, Ireland............

A boarded-up house, also at Cobh............

And some rather delicious-looking artisan bread at our local market.

Have a look at the link at the beginning and see what other people have some up with!

Carmi's theme this week is Windows

so, as they say, "Here's looking at you!"

View from one of the many windows at The Glasshouse at RHS Wisley. Beautiful place, the Glasshouse houses tropical, temperate, wet and dry plants, and looks out over the lake.

These funny wooden windows are on the black and white church at Marton, in Cheshire. The church has a wood tower and spire, and these windows are right up in the bell chamber.

Reflections in the windows of Macclesfield College.

One of the magnificent windows we saw in Gran Canaria, Spain (Canary Islands)

Also this lovely Art Deco window overlooking the Cathedral Square, in Gran Canairia

Struggling with a new computer I feel the worse for wear! However, I found this photo, which I hope will go with Carmi's theme of "The Worse for wear".
Hope to do better next week!
