The View From Here

October 19, 2015

I’m really into shooting iPhone pictures from airplanes.

(That is a lot more fun than trying to get through airport security without any form of identification, which requires spending a lot more time with TSA than usual, including answering myriad nosy questions, and getting an ultra-deluxe, all-over body scan, which, as I said on my Facebook post this afternoon, is impressively comprehensive, especially as it’s conducted in the middle of a busy terminal, in the full and somewhat embarrassing view of hundreds of people…sigh.)

Here are my favorites from today:

Iconic structures at LAX…


The South Bay beaches…. El Segundo, Manhattan, Hermosa, Redondo, Torrance, and Palos Verdes…


Farmland approaching Sacramento…




And one I took of the Sac Airport when I flew out last week… I’ve always loved the landscaping around the airport; it’s nice to see how it lays out…I-5 in the foreground…
