Photo Post

Last Sunday I was able to join a group for a photo walk around Washington National Airport1. Here are a few of my better shots. If you’re interested, the full set is here.

National Airport
The domes of the airport’s B and C terminals with a very cloudy sky.

Hurried Travelers
During this session, we were allowed to use a tripod in the terminal which makes it easier to get shots like this.

Tails
A couple of American Airlines planes waiting at the gate.

Photographers 2
Some members of our group as reflected in the dome of a security camera.


1. Don’t ever call the place “Reagan” Airport around me. :-)

Picture Post #3

A few recent shots from in and around DC.

Framed

A workman directing traffic for a construction project in downtown DC (one of many) as seen through what I think used to be a police call box.

Golden Ceiling

If I gotta take someone to the airport (Washington National, NOT Reagan) early in the morning, may as well take advantage of the inside light.

Empty Metro

In the middle of the day, I not only get a Metro seat to myself but the whole car.

Church Tower

A tower on the Greater New Hope Baptist Church in the Chinatown area of Washington has kind of a medieval look to it.

Travel Day

Not much interesting today. We flew from Shanghai to Guangzhou, the third largest city in China (4th largest in the world with about 24 million people), a major trading center, and a place I knew almost nothing about before doing research for this trip. But the flight was delayed three hours for weather so instead of Guangzhou we got to experience a waiting room in the Shanghai airport for a while. Not much different from many U.S. terminals.

After finally arriving we did have a little time to walk through the area around our hotel and came across this dance exercise group in a large downtown park. Lots of other people were out for an evening walk in the high heat and humidity, a big change from Shanghai which was pleasantly mild during our stay. This part of China is in a tropical region, at about the same latitude as Havana, Cuba.
