On my return trip from Shanghai to Los Angeles and home, I did a four hour layover in the Tokyo airport (and I do recommend Japan Airlines). And is my habit, I had a forward window seat for the leg into Tokyo and we had this wonderful landscape, with the clouds and the sun rays shining through. It was a nice greeting.
My issue at the Tokyo airport was more of my own, as I also use my cell phone to keep track of the local time. And I thought that I had it on automatic update, but I did not. Thus the one hour time change in Japan almost had me miss my connection to Los Angeles. It did not help that there was a gate change since I landed and I was sitting at the wrong gate. But when I looked up at a clock and saw the local time, I realized that I should have been boarding and there was no plane. Strange. Then a quick, “I’d better check”, then find that there was a new gate for the flight and I was then doing my own ‘flying’ through the airport. Lucky that this airport is not so huge and that I was in the right terminal. But all is well that ends well and I made the flight in time.
Note: my first impression of this image is to include it with my series Ethereal Images. And I may be working my mojo on it a little more as well, but time will tell. Now just to let it sit and allow me to reflect on it for a while. The airplane window that I photographed with was a little dirity on the outside, thus not much I could do be try to choose a clean area to photograph throuh, I think that this image is realitivly ‘clean’.
