On a wing...
The best thing about travelling for work is the trip home. Knowing what awaits when I land is enough to make even the most crowded, turbulent flight a happy one.
I took this somewhere over southwestern Ontario. I was on the last leg of my journey home from Dallas. I was in a Saab 340, whose small size and extreme noise and vibration were partially offset by the leather seats. The sky was a dull gray, but I held my camera in my hand, just in case.
I'm glad I did, because the sun briefly peeked out and changed the scene from drab to poetic. I knew this was a moment I wanted to remember.
It may just be a wing on an old, noisy plane, but it brought me home to three excited kids waiting at the airport, and a tired wife who was glad I was home.
Your turn: Got a homecoming story to share?
