I love window seats!
When I fly, I always try to get a window seat. Even at night, I yearn to peer out the airplane and see the Earth and clouds below. The most beautiful flight I ever took was from New York to Seattle. As luck would have it, my plane was at the right speed and latitude to create a sunset that lasted for several hours. I didn’t have a camera, but I remember it well. Even the flight attendants marveled at the sight!
Neighborhoods often look like mosaics from far above. The second photo was taken while descending into Phoenix, Arizona. It kinda reminds me of a tile floor, as well as some of the beautiful mosaic streets they have in Portugal.
I always try to catch a photo of my airplane’s shadow. It reminds me of a childhood picnic when I was 12-years-old. As we munched sandwiches in the middle of a wheat field, an airplane’s shadow passed over me and my friend. This cold flicker momentarily confused us, but we giggled with delight as it raced away. When we told my friend’s older sister and parents, none of them believed us. So annoying!
Follow me on Instagram & I’ll follow you back!
I’ve gone from turning up my nose at the idea of cell phone pictures, to being an avid iPhone photographer, which is why my theme for the 2014 A to Z blog challenge is Instagram Travel Photos. If you are on Instagram, I’d be delighted to follow you. Simply follow my photo feed (@TuiSnider) on Instagram and I’ll follow you back!

My A to Z Inspired Book: Unexpected Texas
I’d like to thank everyone who commented on my blog during the A to Z Challenge last year, because it convinced me to take the self-publishing plunge. On March 2, 2014, I released Unexpected Texas as a paperback and eBook and it quickly became an Amazon Best Seller!
