10 Really interesting images from above the crowd

One of the great things about the Web is the incredible number of great images we can run across even in a very short period of time. From the artsy to the mundane they are all out there but when you can take a unique view even the mundane can become artsy.

One of the ways this can happen is aerial photography. Because of the shift in perspective we are given a chance to look at something with almost a fresh set of eyes. Recently I ran across a really nice collection of aerial photography over at Smashing Apps, these ten are some of my favorites.
