15/365 : Local Customs
The joys of travel. Yesterday I spent 12 hours total getting from the door of the condo in Cancun to the door of my home in Georgetown. Now, that was for 3.5 hours flying time. The issue was that our plane had some sort of mechanical problem that they decided to fix in Cancun. This was discovered as the plane flew from Calgary to Cancun to pick us up. The maintenance staff were flown in from Vancouver to do it. What does that have to do with my 365 day photo project? Well, it meant I was in an area with limited photo opportunities for most of the day - Cancun’s Airport Terminal, or inside a Boeing 737 … two places I’d rather not upset the locals by pressing too much with the camera. I DID take some photos in both places but I wasn’t very happy with what I got. We landed at midnight - that meant time was up for the day and I went with the Cactus Juice I had at breakfast for my photo yesterday … where there was a problem, there was also an opportunity - I was still in the airport when the timer reset and a new day begun. Here, I’ve stopped to grab a photo on the way to Canada Customs in Pearson’s Terminal 3. It’s one of those photos that’s hard to get on a day to day basis, since it requires me to book an international flight to get back here. The conversion to Black and White was done in Aperture.
