Sunset Over JFK

It is Dec. 7, 1982, and I am in the boarding lounge at John F. Kennedy International Airport. I’ll be boarding a Pan American World Airways flight to New Orleans.

That is probably  my plane in the foreground because my flight log shows that I flew on a Boeing 727.

It had not been all that long since the U.S. government had allowed Pan Am to fly domestic routes. For many years, Pan Am could only carry passengers headed overseas.

The sun is setting and I’m captivated by the sight. I see some possibilities, namely framing aircraft at the gate and the setting sun.

This image is one of several I made, trying different settings and framing. It is my favorite of the batch.
