My sceneries from the plane window

I was really struck by Maira’s “Sceneries From The Plane Window,” so I decided to shoot my own on my trip back from Portland. Her camera is better than mine, and the conditions in her plane were a bit better suited for photography, but I like the way some of these turned out.

The object in the front of the photograph is the propeller, and my arm (and bright green wrist-band) are a bit too visible in these. Most unfortunately, though, I had to put my camera away for the descent; it’s too bad, because we got an incredible aerial view of San Francisco.

We got that view flying into Oakland from the north, so if you are doing that, I can recommend a window seat on the right hand side.
