Dusk and Dawn
Disclaimer: Some photographs here have been posted earlier in my blog.
A few posts ago I mentioned that I always wanted an early morning or late night flights. Here are few of the reasons why:
(1) Terminal gets pretty crowded. One on top is NAIA Terminal 2 pre-departure area, and the one on the bottom is Davao International Airport pre-departure area. Not only does the terminal get pretty crowded so does the check-in area. Now if you’re looking for your gate and check-in counter…
…that won’t be to helpful at all. I can just imagine the rush, especially now during the yuletide season where many Filipinos take a vacation away from the metro to their respective provinces to spend the holidays (like me!)
(2) The real reason for me is to be able to get into the sky and capture these colors. Or even chance upon a good sunrise or sunset (that I haven’t… thus I’m still striving to get one).
This was shot first quarter of this year and I really love those colors. Another reason is to be able to capture the drama…
Yes, I’d like to call that drama. I like to watch the way the lights are lighting up the highways up above, the thousands of cars caught in traffic, the uneven lights of skyscrapers and such. It’s a beauty. This was shot over Metro Manila when I was on a flight bound for Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia.
Now I know some of you may not like taking photos, except for selfies (no offense – hehehe) but don’t want the hassle of waking up too early to take a flight or arrive pretty late in the evening to your destinations and at the same time hate the idea of long waiting lines, no seats, uncomfortable accommodations in the pre-departure area — here’s my solution: Get a frequent flyer mile card.
