We spent the holidays too-ing and fro-ing from Houston to places north. Part of this time was inevitably spent in airports. Everyone did really well even when the unexpected (or maybe it is to be expected when traveling over the Christmas Holiday to snowy parts) travel glitches occurred. Like when we were playing under the dinosaur in the O’Hare terminal next to the Delta customer service stand at 7:00pm. We made it fun and did all kinds of things like hopping, walking along the joints of the terrazo floor as if it were a balance beam, looking at the Christmas trees, shopping at the Field Museum Gift shop (yes it was quite the line at the customer service counter that night), getting Starbucks fruit cups, etc. etc.
These images are from Houston and Dulles. Lots of windows make for great natural light. Plus there are always so many thing to see and watch. Chase and Rebecca were both mesmerized by the size of the planes – we were more often than not on regional jets – and actually had to go OUTSIDE to embark on our flight to Syracuse from Dulles. I think it was around 30 degrees – fortunately we packed the winter coats in our carry on bag.
I am glad though that I took these images. They document the trip but more importantly the special personalities of the little ones just so excited to see snow, thier grandparents and really big planes.
I love the light and the reflection on the floor here, plus the architecture and inverted panels are just so interesting. This last image was shot while we were making our way through the maze of elevators and cross walks that we traversed on our way to that tiny little jet in Dulles. Such a funny airport with all those huge futuristic elevated buses.
