View Full Version : Trip to America - Day 1

February 25th, 2015, 08:27 AM
So I should point out that these pics aren't meant to show examples of great photography because for the most part they aren't, but rather give a photographic description of my day yesterday travelling over from Sydney to New York City.

Dad was supposed to drive me right to Sydney airport, but unfortunately due to traffic and him running late, I had to get the bus for the last little part.

My flight was QF11 to Los Angeles, code shared with American Airlines

Out the terminal window. Straight ahead behind the clouds are the city buildings. On the left, the larger Qantas tail is the back of my plane (A380)

1. How long are you in the US? 2. You didn't want to visit LA?

I always enjoy your pics here. You do take care to get the best image even if its on the move and getting the subway one is especially good.

Enjoy your trip

1. How long are you in the US? 2. You didn't want to visit LA?

1) Just under 2 weeks
2) I'm travelling on my own and would prefer to do LA properly with someone else as I associated more of a social place with the theme parks etc.

*Gasps* You double posted, mister! :P

You can only have 10 pics per post and I had more than 10 :P

Thanks for your comments everyone. :D
