In the course of leading photography workshops all over the world, I log tons of airline miles every year and see the inside of more than my fair share of airports. I am a long way from dreading flying and I hope this time doesn’t come anytime soon. There is a big world out there just waiting for me to see.
This year I have made it a mission to photograph, in a more serious manner, many of the airports that I visit. First up is Denver International Airport (DIA). I’ve always thought that DIA has one of the coolest designed around. They stay that they tent-like structures are meant to reflect the peaks of the mountings in the Colorado area. I waited for a United plane (DIA is a United Hub) to move across the runway to give the image a bit more depth.
PS: Be careful where you point your camera when you are around an airport. Yes, you guessed it – there’s a story here.
