From a Window Seat: Fans Take Airplane Window Photos for L.A.-based Band Dawes

201304-b-from-a-window-seatjpg

If you’re anything like me, fighting with travel companions for the window seat—whether in a plane, train, or automobile—is a rite of passage. And with the proliferation of photo apps and filters, it’s never been more tempting to snap a shot of the view (and, of course, post it on Twitter, complete with a humblebrag).

The Los Angeles-based country-roots-rock band Dawes has taken this idea to new heights, inspired by their latest single "From a Window Seat." For the last few weeks, the band and their fans have been tweeting and Instagramming photos taken from airplane windows (and cars, trains, buses, hotel rooms, etc.), using the hashtag #fromawindowseat. Next came a dedicated website, which compiles the photos and highlights the band’s favorites. But before you start snapping, check out these T+L tips for getting the best view in the sky, and don’t miss our recent slideshow of reader-generated photos taken from planes.
