Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet

A Boeing 747 is readied for another flight, with hand luggage on board.

This is the plane that flew me to London Heathrow from San Francisco. I shot the photo through the plate glass of the departures lounge. It was converted to b/w and dodged/burned afterwards. The panoramic format works really well when the image is 3504 pixels wide, but I’m not so sure about the small format uploaded here.

No pictures of the Cobh Peoples Regatta today. I didn’t have time to work on them this morning!

Aperture ƒ/11

“with hand luggage on board”? that means they let you bring a camera onto the plane with you (it hadn’t already been packed away). Did they ask you to take it apart, or did they just trust that your camera doesn’t transform into a shotgun?

fantastic shot, btw – the distortion of the perspective really shows how large the thing is!

Camera, two lenses, a flash unit, lots of wires, a laptop, chargers.. I didn’t leave any wires in my luggage because my luggage was checked by security on my way out. Didn’t get my luggage until more than a day after I arrived in SF. Made for a heavy laptop bag though 🙁

Matt – I got that feeling when I was seated on the plane near the back. I got an aisle seat and in fact the 2 seats next to me were empty but I could look down the aisle and see through to 3 sections of the plane. “This thing is really huge!”

[…] What a rollercoaster ride! We’ve had our ups and downs but the site grows bigger every day, we add new features, we met up at WordCamp and talked to people about what they want. After WordCamp I flew back to Ireland 2 days before the whole terrorist alert happened in the UK and I’m still thankfull I wasn’t caught up in the confusion and strife that caused for airline passengers!
