Nacelle

On a recent evening flight home, I sat over a 737’s wing. It was time to take some more pictures.

Maybe not quite as cool an angle as a row or two farther back, but it still has a very organic feel.

My 10 Favorite Photos of 2013

Carrying a camera with me most of the time, I take a lot of pictures. I take pictures during my bicycle commute. I take pictures when I fly. I even take pictures while I wait for my flight. And I post a bunch of them.

Of the pictures I took and posted in 2013, these are nine of my favorite.

Finally, I include my favorite animated GIF from the year.

That makes an even ten. Do you have a favorite? Did I miss your favorite?

A View from the Exit Row

Mmm… :-)

Today’s airport experience in PDX was downright nice: the TSA was scanning boarding passes at the far end of the line and sending a large portion through the “PRE” line. Those of us lucky enough to be selected went through security pre-9/11 style: coats, shoes, and belts stayed on and computers remained packed. As another passenger said, “It’s like were not the enemy today.”

I hope your day was filled with nice surprises, too.

I thought the flight home yesterday evening was going to be too late/dark to take any good pictures. Maybe it was…
