AS has a fairly large operation at LAX, including hourly service to Seattle

After a brief, uneventful flight, of which barley lasted 2 DJ Tiesto podcasts, we landed. Nothing at the airport besides a NW A320 and a myriad of corporate jets

I agree, the photographic quality is incredible. Have you done a professional photography course?

He has a Canon EOS400D as far as I know. The photos are indeed very nice but you don't need to follow a photography course to get those pictures nowadays. The camera itself produces those wonderful images, it's just a matter of pressing the button. If you want even better photos you might want the EOS450D but than again digital cameras nowadays get better every year. I wish I could only have the EOS400D!

Nice TR MD90, congrats!

Great photos! Did you enjoy Cabo San Lucas? I just finished building a website for a sportfishing outfit there (friends of my company's owners) and after looking at the photos they submitted I am dying to go! Big grin

Great photos and a fascinating TR. Cabo has DEFINITELY changed since I was there around 10 years back. Seems like the beach front construction looks very crowded ... and the beach itself looks very busy. Chiapas remains the place to be I guess  Smile. Thanks again for sharing.

Cheers,

10 years ago, Cabo was a sleepy little fishing village, but those days are long gone.
