At the gate
Hong Kong, China

Airplanes are sexy. I've covered this before (here, here and here) but it'll still never get old. These incredible machines have a certain presence, a je ne sais quoi that never fails to make the hair on my skin stand up whenever I'm near one.

Which is why when I've got time to kill in an airport, I like to look for new ways to shoot them. I know the post-9/11 mentality frowns on this kind of thing - hello NSA! - but it's a chance I'm willing to take given the fact that I can't get a pic like this from my front porch. You've gotta be at the airport for this kind of photography, and if pursuing the craft here means dodging the occasional rent-a-cop, I'm up for it.

Never mind that this was in Hong Kong, and the rent-a-cops were probably a little meaner than they were back home. Silly me...

Your turn: Do you shoot in airports? Pictures, that is.

They're plenty mean here in the USA, too, Carmi.

But I understand the need to take the picture!
