Last week I was at Blackberry Devcon 2010 in San Francisco. It was an interesting show and the city was beautiful. This was my second trip to San Fran and since I totally neglected to take pictures last time I forced myself to take some snaps this time round.
SFO is an interesting airport. Its cross-hairs style runway layout provides a lot of interesting picture opportunities (dual parallel approaches etc) and the proximity of the runways 28L and 28R to the terminal allow photographers some decent chances to snap away. Being a United fortress, pretty much ever type of UA bird in any active livery can be seen here on any given day. Whether you’re for or against the merger with Continental you really can’t argue that a coat of paint will do a lot of these birds some good.
SFO is also a key gateway into the United States and as such there was a significant presence of airlines hailing from the other side of the Pacific. As I was only there for a few hours in the early afternoon I was only able to capture the Asian carriers.
I’m still very much a beginner photographer but managed to capture some half decent shots. Enjoy the shots in full size by clicking the thumbnails above or click through to Flickr!
