What a night! The flight started just fine. Leaving hot Florida behind and moving into much cooler air was expected. I hadn’t checked the weather and didn’t know we were flying into a thunderstorm. We got up to Minneapolis a little early, but because of the weather we circled the city what seemed like a million times. I JUST HATE IT when the pilot slows way down, then hits the throttle like we’re about to hit the ground early or something…not fun! Of course the kids squealed and laughed with joy, as I remember doing as a kid. After doing this a few times we finally landed and everyone sighed with relief. 

I visited with a lady that was heading to Rochester. She had been very nervous and wasn’t looking forward to her next flight. It was getting close to 10, I was tired, and wouldn’t you know it I went to see what gate I needed to be at for my next flight to Rochester. I was actually going to La Crosse, but that conversation got me all messed up and thinking only of Rochester.

Well, I found the gate, sat down, looked out the window and picked up my camera. The rain and the reflections were interesting to me. As I was snapping away I heard an announcement that my flight (not really) had been moved clear across (like, the opposite side!) the airport to another gate. Well, I picked up my stuff and slowly made my way over there. I took some shots along the way, got to the new gate, more shots. Then I noticed this lady, she looked tired. Hey! That was the same lady…wasn’t she going to…ROCHESTER?! Finally, a bell went off. I turned to see the sign by the entry to the plane. Sure enough, I was at the wrong gate. At this time it’s getting late, there’s hardly a soul around. I ran to get back. Met a Northwest guy that was just closing his terminal. Take the train he said. I asked him to please let them know I was coming. He said he would try. I just pictured myself sleeping there all night. I finally made it. It turned out that flight was also delayed and waiting for a couple of other people. Whew! Then we sat there…another delay because of the bad weather. All the workers had to get off the runway because of lightning. Great!

Finally we took off in a snazzy little plane. I swear they flew extra fast to catch up on time. Only to fly in circles, again, because of weather and traffic so we could finally land. Man oh man what a long trip! It did feel nice to get home and to bed that night.

This one is my favorite with the Captain

I just got back from an amazing workshop with Kevin Keelan. Here are a couple of shots I really liked from my trip to Altamonte Springs, FL. I will post shots from the seminar when I get a chance to go through them. As always I took a lot of pictures and will try to find time to go through them soon. Feel free to coment.  : )

I sat and waited for my flight in La Crosse, WI, and noticed how the lines in the floor appealed to me.

My plane to Florida. Plus some glare from inside the lobby.
