Crossing RWY1R for take-off from 28L, bound to Paris. The runway looks very wide but not that long... The two black strpes in the middle are the very used RWY's 28L/R.

This angle of SFO always scares me because the runway looks so short! Very nice perspective of the length of the A343.

Great sample of how a telephoto lens shrinks the perspective. The runway 1R is 8648 ft. long and 200 ft wide. The rwys 28R/L are 200 ft wide too and they seem much thinner.

The incline of 1R looks weird vs the flat angle of the A340. Still it's funny how perception can play tricks on the mind.
