Prior to the pandemic, I did a lot of flying for personal and work travel. I bet I flew somewhere once a month.
That came to an abrupt halt with the pandemic.
The week the pandemic began, March 2020, I was schedule to fly to Los Angeles, California, to run a half-marathon with a runner with Down Syndrome. And two weeks after that I had plans to travel to some other forgotten location to speak at a legal conference.
A part of me loves flying – viewing the world from a rare vantage point, people-watching in and around airports, etc.
A part of me hates it, too. That’s a carry-over from my days in the military, when I nearly died on my first jump from a C-141 at airborne school.
In 2022, I returned to travel.
I don’t know whether it is because I am carrying a camera everywhere I go, or because I am excited about escaping lockdown and being able to travel, but there are a lot of interesting things to photograph while flying on airplanes that I don’t remember seeing before the pandemic.
I also noticed that I choose the window seat, something I never did pre-pandemic, to see more of the world I am flying past.
