Since more than 1,500 flights take off from LAX on any given day, photograher Micheal Kelley pointed out that he only focused on one runway and this picture isn’t meant to capture every single flight – or even every plane he took a picture of during takeoff.”I think the picture resonates with so many people because now we take air travel for granted in our lives,” Kelley . “Flying has become so mundane.
