It’s almost fall again and for the last four or five years I have traveled in the fall/winter. Its taken me all over the world and this year is no different it seems only this time I will be taking it back to the basics and traveling by car around the US with YoungDoo. I am excited about the opportunity to explore the US again and look forward to shooting all the way across the country with her. So in the spirit of travel I pulled this from my archives. I took this photo while on the way back from Korea earlier this year and I really love the image simply because I love traveling by plane. Unlike many people I really love airports and the whole mess of an experience traveling by air can be. Getting stuck in an airport somewhere is less of a disaster in my mind and more of a chance to feel lost and rough it for a night in a unique sort of a way. The spirit of travel is never lost on me, even on the long days.
I remember this sunset well, in a crowded terminal in Newark the sun was setting on the runways and the sun was casting a bright orange glow across the faces of all the travelers sitting around in those never comfortable seats. It was just a beautiful moment all around that no one but me seemed to be enjoying. I found this image just as the sun left the sky. A few pigeons were flying from walkway to walkway and one made it into this shot there on the left. So in memory of these sorts of memories I’ll leave you with a wallpaper of the photo.
