Good fences and the A380




 I took this photo with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 with a Leica lens


The Emirates A380 aeroplane waiting for the runway to clear
at Auckland International Airport
before take off to some exotic destination!

From previous posts, you may have already guessed
I've had a long fascination with aircraft and airports.
For me they offer the opportunity
to connect with family living
on the other side of the world.
Since the A380 commenced flights out of New Zealand
I've dreamed of flying in this aircraft
and I'm hoping to bring this dream to fruition next year!

I took this photo last Sunday just before dusk.




I'm joining Good Fences
Thank you Tex for hosting!




Take care and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt





Shane

  8. Great photo, Shane. I like the contrast between the simple fence and the high tech airplane. Our complicated world!

  12. Love the photo and your dream of flying this plane. While I am an avid traveler, I hate flying and the thought of this plane (I can't imagine how it is able to lift off ;-) )and me in it makes me faint. . .and not from excitement. I hope you get to fly it and then I can read about it here.

  14. No way to keep that plane fenced in, but it does make for an excellent sight. I had the opportunity to visit your part of the world years ago, and loved it.

  19. Wonderful shot - that glow in the sky is amazing! Hope you get the chance to fly in one of these beautiful planes. I love planes, too - Boeing is one of the largest employers here (near Seattle), so we have lots of opportunity to see them up close. xo Karen

  20. Dearest Shane,
    Yes, airplanes sure do bridge the gaps between geographic distances between family and friends!
    You sure will get to go next year; time is going so fast...

  21. It's interesting what you say about airports because I have the same kind of feeling about them. It's always fascinating to me that people go there and then are transported to far away places. I get the same feeling when I see a plane take off. I hope your dream is realized!

  26. Hi. Shane,
    We have flown on Emeritas airline from LAX to Dubai, but not on A380..16 hour flight..marvelous service. I love when you post photos of the airliners flying into Auckland. One day we hope to come to NZ for a visit!
    Happy early spring to you across the oceans!

  27. Love the photos! I do believe we are kindred spirits, as I love airports too and just imagining where everyone it going and coming from. Love sitting in the waiting area and watch as families say goodbye or re-unite. It sometimes brings tears to my eyes.
