Applying Patience

I'm not much of a flyer. It takes something pretty important for me to climb on to an airplane, such as a trip to see my son, but I've mostly had decent experiences.  The exception was on my last return trip during which my expected four hour layover turned into almost three days of cancellations and rerouting and would have been longer if I hadn't finally rented a car and drove home.  The weather was the main culprit but the airline's lack of customer service made a bad situation miserable.  This couple settled themselves in with their devices and seemed to take it all in stride, but then again their plane actually took off.


  1. Terry, I clicked on this for a close up and Wow! I just love it. You captured the moment so well and I love the people going forward in the background which actually contrasts so much with the couple, that your eye goes right back to them!Even the plane in the sky. This looks like a work of weeks to finish! I love it!

  2. this is fabulous. I agree totally with Egretta. My last flying experience was years ago when I was singled out for the full body pat down. Haven't flown since.

  3. Your work looks terrific..I don't now how you can put so much good stuff into a tiny board.Wow!
