Theme Thursday: Wings

Posted on Thursday, July 8th, 2004

Dave!This is the first Theme Thursday that I have actively planned for, which is kind of cool. Given the theme of wings, I made an effort to be sure that each of my three flights on Monday were seated next to the window, behind the wings of the plane. Since I had my new wide-angle lens with me, it was pretty easy to ensure that the wings were in every shot along my journey.

Leaving the small airport at Wenatchee, Washington...

TT Wing Wenatchee

Passing Mt. Rainier on the way to Seattle (Mt. St. Helens is in the back on the right... and perhaps that is Mt. Adams back on the left?)...

TT Wing Rainier

Leaving Seattle, and passing over Mercer Island after a plane change...


Leaving Boise, Idaho after another plane change (and asking for a seat on the opposite side of the plane)...

TT Wing Boise

And approaching my destination of Salt Lake City, Utah (where six years of drought seem to be taking its toll)...


Usually, I would not have to take three flights... I can get a direct flight out of Seattle to Salt Lake City. But, because of the Independence Day holiday, flights were full and it was far cheaper to make a quick stop in Boise (which is along the way anyway).

    I love this series – making a mental note not to avoid the wings on planes when taking pictures…

  6. Dave2 says:

    It was kind of funny that usually I perform wild acrobatics within my seat in order to be sure the wing doesn’t ruin my shot, and this time I was doing my best to actually fit it in somehow! I knew I wanted a series of photos, so the tricky bit was to try and make the wings appear in different places in each time.

    gosh, it’s very cool seeing the same sorts of photos I got myself just a couple of weeks ago. (well of Seattle and Mt Rainier anyway 🙂 ). great pics as always 🙂

    FABOLOUS shots!

  9. AGK says:

    These are very cool! I’ve never been on a plane, so it’s nice to see what it looks like. (Still waiting on my new camera, though I do know it is being shipped and is on its way RIGHT NOW!)

  10. Colby says:

    Those are nice pictures. Just a note to anyone who hasn’t done it before, make sure the flash is turned off on the camera. He He
