It's not a.net material, of course, but I thought the photographers among us would appreciate it. A closer look reveals what appears to be a camera bag being carried by the kid's father:
So it seems my great uncle caught a glimpse of a father and son's trip to the airport observation deck for some photography and inspiration.
It's a horrible shame that experiences like this are virtually impossible today.
Here's to the efforts being made to make airports spotter-friendly once again. Specifically, here's to MSP and their efforts to initiate their Airport Watch program. With some hard work and effort on our part, maybe we can return the magic and inspiration of airport trips like this one to future generations.
Anyway, I just wanted to share this photo with everyone, and I hope you all enjoy it.
