Ode to Flight

I decid­ed to do a quick exper­i­ment using my Canon Pow­er­shot SD880 cam­era. I doc­u­ment­ed my flight from Bur­bank to Oak­land this past Sun­day night. I know its an every­day thing now since its been part of soci­ety since the ear­ly 20th cen­tu­ry but its just crazy cov­er­ing 350 miles in just an hour. The con­ve­nience of that ver­sus dri­ving a car for 5.5–6 hours between the Bay and LA.

Flight—its sim­ply an amaz­ing thing.

Here is the set that I com­piled.

Happy Chrismahanukwanzakah!

It’s been 3 hours since most of the great peeps here at Mil­i­tary Advan­tage have left for the Hol­i­day Week­end. I was post­pon­ing my depar­ture for home as I was wait­ing on my ear­ly Christ­mas gift to myself, a new back­pack for my new toys. It final­ly came in 30 min­utes ago, and have been play­ing around with its fea­tures and stuff.

Now, I’m con­tem­plat­ing to see if I can even bring it with me on my flight lat­er tonight to Bob Hope/Burbank Air­port. I usu­al­ly car­ry my pho­to-gear in a Canon 2400 Gad­get Bag along with my roll-a-way lug­gage. See­ing it first hand, this new back­pack seems to be about the size of one car­ry-on. So yah, now… I don’t even know what to do. I can either just pack my 20D and the small­er lens­es in the small­er bag; or risk it and use the new back­pack, so I may bring my 70–200/2.8L IS along with me for the week­end. If I do do the lat­ter and get reject­ed, I might have to just check-in my roll-a-way.

We’ll see… we will see. Any­ways, Hap­py Chris­ma­hanuk­wan­za­kah!
