I love everything about flying. From the long lines at the airport, delays, and grumpy people sitting next to you what is there to hate? But in all seriousness, for the most part I love flying. Airports are filled with people with all different backgrounds traveling to all these different places. Flying means that there is change happening, whether it be a long term change or short term change, either way it is all exciting. I love being able to be above the earth with a birds-eye-view gaining new perspectives to what I know and see daily.
This past May I was able to go up to Michigan to help my grandfather do some spring cleaning and get ready for summer. He lives about an hour away from Midland, so I had to take a small regional jet from Detroit to the Tri-City airport. Usually I try to get nonstop flights so I don't have to deal with changing planes or any confusion, but apparently there are no direct flights from BWI to a small airport in mid-Michigan with only 4 gates.
On the way home I had a 3 hour layover in Detroit, so I decided to explore around the terminal and find an empty corner to capture some pictures. With my wandering around, I stumbled upon Gate A64. The next flight leaving was over 6 hours away and there was only one man in the corner of the waiting area sleeping on the ground. I loved the symmetry in the architecture and the chairs, so I decided to take the opportunity and run with it.
