    I had gone to California to work on a golf course and couldn't get out until Christmas day . This is a shot looking back at San Diego from the 737 I was on.

    Here's a fun shot of the car I rented with a 737 approaching above.It was difficult to shoot because you didn't know when a plane was coming until it was there . Nice weather for Christmas!

    Here is a shot of the winglet on the 737 . These were just added to Continental's fleet . The sun was setting behind us and gave it an inteeresting glow . We were suppose to see Catwoman on the flight but the video equipment wasn't working so I shot photos of the wing , great fun. .. .. . . .. .

    Thanks USA ,you're as sweet as your avatar .
    The flight was a little scary , at the ticket counter there was a woman who was obviously a muslim (from the way she was dressed,long flowing burgundy sheet)that was insisting on getting on a flight and the ticket agent was obviously quite pissed with her. Of course when I boarded my flight ,there she was . She got up to go to the back at the worst times (while the carts were in the aisle)and insisted on getting her way .I know I was being paranoid but everything she did seemed suspicious . :terror:
    Unfortunately I was on the wing so I was limited to what I could shoot . There were 2 aircraft carriers docked in San Diego and I wish I could have gotten a shot from the air .Here is a shot of San Diego that shows the Navy base .

    Well Pretender,
    Photography is part of what I do for a living . I produce small books for golf courses called yardage guides .I go to the golf course , measure it , draw a plan view of each hole and green , photograph it and bring all this stuff home and put a book together of illustrations of each hole . I also include some of the photographs that I shot on the course . I'm including a typical sample page here .
