  • Sunrise at the Hillsboro Airport

    Sunrise at the Hillsboro Airport

    In every direction, the clouds were different this morning.

  • The bridge to PDX

    The bridge to PDX

    About a week ago, Suzi and I dropped Melissa off at the airport. Normally, I park on the fourth floor of short term parking because that is the skybridge floor. As I got off the ramp, I noticed the sign said one parking space was available. What?! There was a car ahead of me, too.

    I dropped Suzi and Melissa off at the skybridge and looked for the ramp to go up another couple of floors. Parking above the skybridge, I saw a different view than I normally see.

    Mmm… I like it! :-)

  • Live-Action SMF Shot

    Live-Action SMF Shot

    I showed up early for my flight home tonight and the flight was delayed. Balance in the universe is maintained.

    What are the odds that I would find someone I know in the SMF airport? You’re right — zero. But it didn’t stop me from trying.

    In my search, I walked by a shop selling GoPro Hero cameras. It inspired me to live an action-filled life worthy of an “activity image capture” camera. Hence, the shot above.

    Finally, a pro-tip for you: when taking self-portraits in an airport, it’s probably best to cover the flashing indicator that suggests a countdown timer. Just sayin’…1No, I didn’t get to meet the TSA, but as I was sitting at the end of terminal B with my camera propped on the window sill facing the length of the terminal and blinking like crazy, I was wondering how long before I was tackled to the ground and hauled away. For all subsequent selfies, I put the camera a little lower and angled away from other people. No tackles!

    I hope your evening has been as action-filled relaxing as mine.

    I arrived at SMF with too much time on my hands and a camera. Problem solved.

  • Sunset on the Tarmac

    Sunset on the Tarmac

    My flight home tonight left as the sun was setting. Unfortunately, I sat on the wrong side to photograph the colors. I snapped this shot before planing.1Planing would be the opposite of deplaning, right? ;-)

  • Morning Ride

    Morning Ride

    I’m working from home this morning; a window installer is coming by to give me a quote on replacing a window. My morning white mocha was still calling me, though, so I rode my bike to Starbucks and sat in a chair outside to enjoy my drink.

    On the way home, I saw this view across the Hillsboro airport to Portland’s West hills.

  • Airport blogging

    I’m at the PDX airport, waiting for my flight. Yet, I’m online, using my laptop, completely unwired. Too cool.1Yes, I hate it when the big name bloggers talk about their travel plans and brag about blogging from the back seat of a taxi using a bluetooth cellular phone networked with a PDA using a WiMAX connection. I’m so sorry. I couldn’t resist. ;-)
