Fun times at the airport...

Its a natural reaction to the frantic, impersonal crowds at the airport that we tune out the people we pass by. In the hustle and bustle to get from car to plane, we often overlook the people behind the scenes and the people standing next to us. Which is a shame.

Personally, I like to try and envision the story behind the nameless faces: the reason for the mismatched shoes, the random itinerary that has brought us together for 30 minutes, the drudgery of dealing with a non-stop conveyor belt of bags.

Well...that's how I pass the time.

thanks for those thoughts. i never knew there is so much more to air travel. once, returning home to chennai (nee madras)from london, i had two interesting women on either side of me. both just dragged themselves through the travel and both were returning from the u.s. after helping with the confinement of their daughter/daughter-in-law. i then realised that america, dear america, had so much to offer us indians.
enjoyed your blog thoroughly.

People watching in airports is something I do regularly. I've been doing it since I was a kid and still do it every time I fly. There is something of the real truth in watching people in places like airports.

Great pics

Hey guys, wicked blog. I'm from South Africa and was just looking at the blogs of note and came across yours which is pretty unique. The photos of the airport are sweet, especially the one of the lone guy on the runway. Its often the people we overlook that make our flying experiences so much fun. Anyway, later. Sean

Thanks for the positive comments. FYI, I spend a LOT of time in airports, and I would go CRAZY if I did not people watch.

I really like the photo of the man on the runway. Nice composition and it's almost abstract for a fraction of a second till you make out there's somebody in there.

Thanks for sharing these images.

I often think about the staff too just to pass the time.

When i'm in a hurry (translation: people already boarding when i arrive, lol) I don't notice the people around me but when i'm early in the airport, i usually pass the time people-watching. People never stop to amaze me, different faces, shapes (not so much color because my trips are domestic - i have not been out of the country), hair styles, and character! Yeah, character! I often wonder how airport personnel are able to handle people with "character." Thanks for the pics.

You got it right my friend. This Life is a big mystery and your mention of this curious side of human nature impresses me and the truth of your article put a smile on my face.

Hi, I was flipping through your blog and LOVE your picture of the guy directing the unseen plane. The composition is brilliant!

Hope you're having a great day. Take Care, Kathy. :)
