A circular polarizer is used on mostly sunny days. Without going into too much detail, it allows one to "play" with certain reflections and either maximize or minimize those reflections for a desired effect.
Photogs, was that a decent explanation?
Also, when you go to Disney World and put on 3 D glasses, those are polaroids but they are working in a different fashion to allow you to appreciate 3-D movies.

Thanks guys for your comments.
Yes I attached a Kenko circular polarizer filter to my Olympus C-2100UZ digital camera. Then corrected brightness and contrast in my Mac.
That C-2100 camera got a nice 10x OPTICAL zoom and although it is 2.1 megapixels, it gives really nice images.
Those billboards in the background belong to a main avenue and as you can see they are too close (as thousands in the city)

MEX got a traffic of 1 landing or 1 take-off every 2 minutes...
There are lots of acfts, AeroMexico's fleet around 80 acfts (Dc9-MD81-2-3-7-8,b757-B767), Mexicana around 70 acft (F100,727,319,320,757) plus all other Mexican airlines... traffic from the United States which is a lot!! And many other things you can see over here.... heavy operations are during the morning very early... and then from 5 pm all the way to the morning due to high elevation and low temperatures hvy acfts got a lot of restrictions and it's a challenge to take-off during high temp hours which is 11 am to 3 pm. Also as Simon says there are delays of an hour or more for takeoff, also when there are no available gates you have to wait a long time... this could be from 30 mins to an hour and 30 mins..
