On the Cover

Photographer Lauren Castellana ’13 got a day’s worth of great shots during her time in—and above—south Florida with pilot Terry Carbonell ’81. But she still didn’t think she had “the one.” So Castellana waited until sunset to capture the cover shot, which was taken 10 hours after she, writer Rebecca Kirkman and Carbonell arrived at Miami Homestead General Aviation Airport. “It came together perfectly,” Castellana says. “The blues of the sky, the soft evening light, Terry’s polo and the Ninety-Nines’ compass rose on the tarmac.”
