    SMF Terminal B, Part II

    I’ve done this shot before. I think I like it better with the people in it.

    A View From 3E

    After a month or so of not traveling, it’s back on the “road” again. Thanks to my trip to Taipei last year, I get the shorter TSA lines and can sit near the front of the plane. I’m not sure I like the front any better than the far back. Either gets you off the…

    Yet Another View From 19E

    It’s nice to have a new pocket camera for taking snapshots out of the plane window. It was cloudy most of the way so I didn’t see Mt. Thielsen, Diamond Peak, or Crater Lake. I snapped this shortly after takeoff from PDX. As I walked in the gentle mist in Folsom, I heard someone say,…

    Headed Home in 16A

    I sit in Sacramento airport’s Terminal B, surveying the fields to the north. It’s quiet here now. The flights to Seattle and LA have pushed back, emptying the terminal of their travelers. The ventilation fans are taking a rest. A lady nearby chats on her mobile. A kid in a baggy knit hat pulls his…

    The View From 16E

    Oregon was covered in clouds for today’s flight from Portland to Sacramento. I happened to glance out the window and catch Crater Lake through a small gap in the clouds as we flew by. California had a brown haze on the horizon, making only high-angle shots reasonable.

    A View From 17A

    I reserved a window seat on the left side to get a different view on my morning flight from Portland to Sacramento. Then I forgot to wear my black coat. Oops! I got lots of glare and reflections.

  • 17A Awaits

    Looking forward to the view from 17A. I typically fly on the right side of the plane. This will give me a different view. :-)
