There's a William Eggleston photograph that I think of every time I travel; as memorable and satisfying as the hook of a pop song, it's been embedded in my subconscious since the moment I first saw it. Eggleston, a Memphis-born photographer known for his color-saturated work, took the photo, called "Untitled (Glass in Airplane)," sometime between 1965 and 1974. It depicts a drink on the tray table of an airplane seat--rum and coke, by the looks of it.

Everything looks constructed, fake, but fake like how Eggleston's photographs - quotidian images of Southern life - often look fake.
