Goodbye, New York

One last glimpse
New York, NY
November 2012
Thematic. Favorites of the year. Here.
This is why I always ask for the window seat. Because the drink cart in the aisle isn't anywhere near as compelling a visual.

Stunning. What a great capture.

Is this taken with a digital camera? Because whenever I fly, I find that the airline won't let us turn on digital devices until we are too high up to get a shot like this. (Mind you, our cities are a little smaller than New York :))

Aunt Snow: Thanks! The dirty and scratched plastic windows are always a challenge, but I've still got to try.

Catherine: Yes, I was using my pocketable Canon. I think the same rules apply here and I'm pretty sure I was breaking those electronic-devices-in-flight rules. Generally, ANY electronic devices are banned during takeoff/climbout and descent/landing, while electronic devices that transmit add an additional rule - must be in airplane/non-transmit mode - during cruise. This technically allows us to use digicams during cruise, which puts me in clear violation, as this was about 1 minute after takeoff. One of these days, I'm going to get my wrist slapped :)
