So here is the scoop:
I went to the Elizabeth Ikea with my friend Blaine Iler. We found a nice spot where we could get some good shots of planes after departure from 22R. Now, after an hour of picture taking, I said, "I am really in the mood to see the BA Netherlands." Sure enough, it landed a few minutes later.
I was standing at a fence with the plane taxiing into the frame as the cop showed up. He didn't seem to care, but had to see ID and crap because the people in Ikea were nervous that we might be taking pictures of cars on the highway
or worse yet... planes
Of course, then an AA 757 that I was waiting to shoot on departure left, right before the Lufthansa 747-400 landed. Why couldn't he wait just 10 more minutes????
Plus, i have 19 more shots and nothing to photograph now, so I don't know when I will get these developed. They are my first shots of planes in motion and I wanna see how I did.
My current mood:
Why yes, in fact, I am a rocket scientist...
