Learning to fly ~ Robert Sturman Photography.

Via on Sep 21, 2011

This is going to be the first in a series of articles, brought to you by the amazing photographer Robert Sturman. It’s more than likely you’ve seen his work before… you may remember his photography as part of Anneke Lucas’ Yoga at San Quentin blogs (of which I hear there’s more to follow)

These photographs are part of a porfolio that Robert asked me to help present to you. I want to keep the writing to a minimum as I feel the art speaks for itself, but they inspired me to go find some fitting quotes….

–Tobye Hillier, Elephant Culture Editor





Flying without feathers is not easy; my wings have no feathers.  ~Titus Maccius Plautus



Angels can fly because they carry no burdens. ~ Eileen Elias Freeman.










 When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.  ~Leonardo Da Vinci


There is an art, or rather a knack to flying.  The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.  ~Douglas Adams, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

 The amazing yogini is;  Noelle Beaugureau!
