A typical pattern that you’ll often find in Islamic Architecture. This is a part of a ramp railing that took you to an underground tunnel in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

A moving walkway can definitely save tired travellers a lot of energy by covering the long distances of today’s super terminals. I took this image from knee level and focused on the people in the far distance with a larger aperture (f/4.5), this was to soften the foreground and draw the eyes to the background. I tried to take another one with more of the foreground in focus (f/16) but a herd of people came into the frame and I couldn’t see an end to them, I had to get to my gate at one point . This was taken in Toronto’s Pearson International Airport (Terminal 1) on one of my many trips back home.

For this week’s entry I’m going with the Ocean Beach Fishing Pier. I just squatted down for this image and made sure that I was right down the middle to get all my lines parellel
This week’s photo challenge is about something that is Big; larger than life. Here is the biggest terminal (Terminal 1) in the biggest airport in Canada (Toronto’s Pearson International). This is just a portion of the US side of the terminal, there is an international side of the terminal and the reason for this is because you clear US customs in most Canadian Airports. Technically this picture was taken in an area that is under US law which makes arriving at your destination a much more convenient process; since you’ve already gone through the hassle of clearing customs you just pick up your luggage and go.
I really wanted to do an HDR of this image and I actually started out by doing so but after looking at what was really going on I didn’t think it was fitting or at least I didn’t like it. The place looks deserted and hasn’t been used in quite some time, the sign that says “Balboa Park Activity Center” has gunk on it! I thought the monochrome was more fitting for the scene.
