I hope to blog more pics from our trip later, but after so much aeroplaning (Took off Saturday morning from Newark and landed Monday afternoon in Japan), it seems like a good time for some aeroplaney photographs.
I thought this was a bit like a body plugged in to life support.
PS - professional photographers like to tell people "it's not the camera, it's the photographer". This, however, is the equivalent of how Heifetz could play the Mendelssohn violin concerto beautifully on a 25 dollar mass produced violin. Never taken such respectable aerial pics before, and it is due to having had a fortunate Christmas, rather than suddenly having got good at taking pictures. Saw Gavin last week and he called my new camera both "old" and "broken", which is fine by me, as such an impression may make me less likely to be mugged. But he did also stroke it lovingly, which was quite strange, as I do that too.
So here's a new mantra to replace "all the gear, no idea":
"Got no idea, need the gear".
