Thought of the day: Airport is one of my favorite places to photograph. Unfortunately I don't get to take many pictures there as I'm usually trying hard to make it to a flight, or holding the hands of a little one, or doing both at the same time. When I do have the luxury to photograph, it's usually really fun. The light, the architecture, the travelers of all sizes and shapes, and everything else are so different from what you encounter in your daily life that certain things, or in fact, many things are jumping out at you all at once and crying to be photographed. Airport is indeed a strange and unusual place. It's chaotic yet orderly, colorful yet bland, imposing yet insignificant, trivial yet vital. When you visit an airport the first time, it seems vast and impersonal, but over time, you would have developed your list of favorite bookstores, coffee shops, sandwich places and you feel more at home. Since I spend so much time in small, quiet cities, visiting the airport gives me a taste of big city living, express style, without actually having to set foot in a big city.
