In the last two weeks I’ve traveled back and forth from Texas, Indiana, Ohio, and back to Texas. Reasons for the trip include a wedding of my good friends in Columbus, Ohio. Also, my mother has been sick recently and I wanted to see her and my family. It was quite a time, visiting with many people who I hadn’t seen since I moved to Texas almost three months ago and others whom I hadn’t seen in years. This is really just a post showing some of the pictures that I took of the trip in the various airports and people watching.
All the images I took on my cell phone, and am happy with how they turned out. I know that the over-processing look is annoying sometimes, but I think it works well for this application. It’s easier to get dynamic images from a small camera on my phone than it is carrying my DSLR. Enjoy.
Waiting for my first flight at six-something am, parts of the Austin airport were dead and some were quite busy. The parts where I was sitting and waiting were mostly slow except for the security area but I didn’t want to start taking pictures there. It’s a slow enough process as is.
Heading to a wedding the day after I flew to Indiana, I had to bring my suit. I don’t like to check my luggage and I didn’t bring a bag big enough to carry my finest threads so I had to wear it while traveling. There were many “Hello Mr. Gaunt, how are you today?” being thrown around.
So now here I am sitting in the Dallas/Ft. Worth airport waiting on my connecting flight to Indianapolis. I saw a nice juxtaposition and thought I would try to capture it. A woman wearing a traditional Burka and a United States military man. I suppose seeing these two people isn’t that uncommon in airports, but I don’t see this all that often.
This is where the trip home starts. I told you that this post is merely about the traveling aspect of my trip. Specifically flying, so don’t be upset that you don’t get to see images of my friends and myself having fun.
This guy stood out to me because of the color of his shirt compared to the color of everything around him. He actually ended up sitting next to me on the flight, and talked to someone on his cellphone about “spending New Year’s in Las Vegas only after I get home from Spain with Katie.”
Once aboard the flight back to Texas I took some pictures of things that I had seen the entire time while traveling. Sky Mall never fails to impress with items that some people must purchase or else they wouldn’t make the cut, nevertheless I like to look.
So there you have it. My trip back to the midwest without actually seeing any pictures of anything but airports and the like. I think sometimes seeing it like this gives a nice perspective on what it is you’re trying to see in the first place.
