I sit on the floor of the airport terminal in Atlanta on the way back home from Africa.  It is always fun to watch how people pass the hours as they await the ultimate announcement “You may now entrust your very life to the hands of one man with stripes on his shoulders by locking yourself in this big metal container while he hurls you through the skies 6 miles above the surface at nearly 600 miles an hour”. You then willingly jump up, stand in line and do as you are told trusting that, somehow, you will soon be collecting the dust of Phoenix in the crevices of your shoes.

Okay….I just finished sitting on a plane for 15.5 hours straight.  What would you expect?

I arrive in Atlanta and got to the terminal for the next leg of this journey just in time to watch my home for the next 15 or 16 hours arrive. If you look above the wing on this visible side of the plane, that is the location of the one piece of furniture that is allotted me in my abode – a chair complete with a dinner table, tilt back recliner features, GPS, personal home entertainment, personal spotlight and very close neighbors. Welcome to Flight DL102 from Atlanta to Johannesburg.

June 4 – Taking Off!

June 4, 2010

For my daily photo today, I ran (not literally) to the airport.  I guess having booking my flight to Africa today, gave me the urge to head here today.

I was a little late as the daylight was waning.  This gave only a few opportunities (in this case ONE opportunity) to catch an airline in motion.  I will have to try this again.   All I can say is that as I watched this plane take off through the lens of the camera, I was stunned at how slow it actually appeared to go.  It was VERY deceiving.  But now it is gone and likely well passed it’s initial destination.
