Aeroplanes in odd places
Sometimes I'm going along in a bus and I spot a view from the window and wish I had my camera at the ready, or even with me, but the moment passes and so does the view. The picture above is one of those views that I've been wishing about for a long time. That aeroplane never seems to move. But the bus does and the driver won't stop.
Then there was a traffic jam. I took out the trusty camera. And there you have it - Kent International Airport. Truly.
This one I've been waiting for for years and it's still not quite right. When I used to be designated driver on airport duty would see aeroplanes perfectly parked waiting for a photo opportunity. Those were the days before I had a digital camera and besides, I was driving.
Then, last month I got it, almost. If the driver had obeyed entreaties to go faster and stay in the middle lane it might have been perfect. So there you have it, Charles de Gaulle Airport taxiway crossing the autoroute A1 just outside Paris, with a plane on it.
