I absolutely LOVE this! I could be at an airport 24/7 just to watch and shoot the people with their luggage on wheels! This reminds me a bit of one I have at Reagan that I have not put on my gallery!

I remember seeing this when it was a winner, Michael, and thinking, "Wow!" I wonder if you just happened to have the tripod with you or noticed the possibility of a great shot and brought along the tripod on a return trip? Judy M.

Hi Judy;
I've been through this terminal many times- I carry a lightweight tripod whenever I travel and I knew this tunnel had many photographic possibilities. I've got hundreds of images from this place.

Thanks for stopping by...glad you liked this image!

Michael, thanks for your recent comments on my photos. I took a peek at your gallery and enjoyed your shots as well. "The Longest Walk" is excellent (as are many others)! I really like your design with the strong graphics, the commuter silhouette and the wonderful colors!!
