Because I Can

I'm posting this shot of a runaway at Boston's Logan airport not because it's great photography, but because I can. This was our first trip were we didn't need to power down all our electronic devices during take off and landing.

Other than giving me a few new chances to grab some photos (none of which ever really turn out like I hope), this policy change doesn't really impact me. I'm usually too busy gripping the arm rests and mumbling to myself about how those terrified feelings I'm getting aren't real. You know, the ones that keep suggesting that I'm hurling through the sky in a metal tube held together by a few flimsy rivets. No, take off and landing are no time for eBook readers and mp3 players, they're convince myself this is totally safe despite all evidence to the contrary time.

Still, flying is a miracle and I'll take 90 minutes of it over 10 hours of driving anytime.

  1. Good to know I'm not the only one with a love / hate relationship with airplanes. I get to know those armrests quite well when I fly, which is almost never because I hate it so much. :) I can't wait to snap some cool flying pictures when I go to Missouri!
