A deepening interest in photography and following certain blogs (like this one) has me seeing things differently these days. I’m looking at the world with a more mindful lens.
I had an overnight stay at a Heathrow Airport hotel before a long flight from London back home to Houston. Stepping into the hallway to head to dinner, I realized I needed to go back in my room and grab my camera to get a picture of the seemingly endless walk to the elevators.
That hallway reminded me of the opening sequence of old Get Smart TV show. As a kid, I was fascinated with that long hallway.
For the next photo, I had to settle for my iPhone, hurriedly retrieved from the bottom of my carryon bag. This angular shot is looking down the escalator (I call it the ‘down’scalator) headed toward the Heathrow Terminal 2 gate where my plane was waiting.
I felt the same in both settings, like the angles in front of me were pulling me toward something.
The ride down the escalator was long enough to create a haiku.
