My World #65:

22 Mar

Arriving early for your flight not only allows you not to be late for it, you also could discover what the airport has in terms of facilities and eats.  It also would give you a chance to enjoy the art work.  Here’s what caught my eyes and my lens the last time I was at SFO waiting for my flight.  Hope you can read the marker above.

    Great shots of the art at the airport. That’s a good thing to spend time doing, looking at art, while waiting on a plane.

    SFO does have some great things to occupy you while you’re waiting on planes — which seems to happen rather frequently these days! The history of this art work is really interesting. Hope your week goes well! Enjoy!

    Hi again, I thought I’d pop back to answer your question about whether that’s my default walk. It’s kinds of more like a alternate one because the other lake which I usually walk at is within walking distance of my house, although sometimes I drive to start walking at different parts of the trails that are farther away. The one for my That’s My world post is a few miles away and doesn’t have as big of a trail area so I tend to forget to go there but whenever I do I’m reminded that there are things I like about it.

    Interesting art work. There seems to be a move towards creativity in airports these days. Sacramento has some interesting artwork. Perhaps I will get a chance to photograph it someday.

    I like that, I would probably miss the plane reading all the little tiles.

    That is what we would call a cool wall. It would certainly make the waiting time more interesting.

    That’s a dedicated artist to paint tiny canvases on the subway to work! Cool photo.

    What an intriguing way to to pass the time on the subway!
    And kudos for SFO for displaying it.

    What an interesting art collection. I don’t think I would mind waiting for a flight if I had those tiles to admire.

    I like arriving early, too. Much less stressful.

    I’ve flown in and out of SFO a few times, but I don’t remember that artwork. Of course, the place is so big, there’s probably a museum’s worth of installations I haven’t seen yet. This one is particularly interesting, to read the phrases embedded in the tiles.

    That’s fascinating. I wonder if it’s on permanent display. I’ll have to look for it next time I’m at SFO – whenever that may be!
