And I'm the one wearing the red shirt, of which you can see a LITTLE tiny piece. It was a great day, I have two shots accepted so far, hope to submit a few more but they're not great. I need a decent camera first.

Photos of me from this weekend... Most of them taken by fellow A.net Photographer, Kevin Cook.

Taken from seat 11J on his way home from MCO on DL 158 to ATL

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v653/dlx737200/justinMCO.jpg

16mm fisheye at TPA's 36R morning departure spot. I got stuck shooting through the fence cause the other guys hijacked my ladder.



Lovely look on my face there... this shot took me by surprise i didn't know he was right next to me with the cam in my face... then "click"

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v653/dlx737200/DSC_1637.jpg

finally.... taken by Joey of TPA:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v653/dlx737200/Kevin_Justin_InAction.jpg

shooting with one hand and waving with the other trying to get a wave from the pilots for a picture of it... no luck... fellow A.net photographer Kevin Cook to my right.

It was a fun weekend

Robin

I took this picture back in May and it was okay, no problems, no questions. Just a friendly wave to the security.
In the past month or two, the security has been significantly tightened around the airport since there are concerns and local and foreign politicians are making numerous trips. But this is temporary and I think things will get back to normal.

I myself can still spot since the airport security are familiar with me, I've been to almost every spot in and around the airport. But I would guess that they will question anyone they may see suspicious.

Advice: Wait a little and make the trip when things get back to normal. You can spot with no problems.

Regards.
