Random Fridays: Plane spotting

planes and champagne

Ever notice how HSBC seems to have a global monopoly on airport branding?

Plane spotting — Kazza style! Indoors and with champagne.

Random Fridays: Pickles

At least, I think they are pickles! I can’t imagine what else they might be. I spotted this jar on the counter of an eatery in Houston airport while waiting for a connecting flight.

Random Fridays: Saxophone artwork, SFO

Airports are one of my least favourite places on earth. Whoever believes “Getting there is half the fun” has not spent 14 hours crammed into economy class, followed by more hours wandering in a bleary daze around an airport while waiting for another bout of economy purgatory on a connecting flight. So it’s a pleasant surprise to encounter something that gives a humanising touch to otherwise soulless international mega-airports. The butterfly enclosure at Singapore’s Changi airport is one such delight, as is the artwork installed at San Francisco airport. I love the wit and whimsy of this saxophone wall installation.
