The curving wall of windows along the front of the Barbara Jordan Terminal building at ABIA makes for a great photographic subject if you love pattern and geometry pictures. If you’ve been to the airport, however, you’ll know that this is a picture that is impossible for pretty much anyone to take. I strongly suspect there is only one other person who has this shot, or one like it, on their hard disk.
One of the biggest perks of shooting for the airport rather than merely at the airport is that you get access to areas and facilities that would not otherwise be available. In this case, that involved a scissor-lift from the airport maintenance department that allowed me to spend an hour 20 feet in the air shooting the inside of the terminal building from above the tops of the passengers, gates and concession stands that would usually get in the way.
As an interesting side note, you can see two large banner images in this shot. The nearest one, on the left, is a picture of mine while the farthest is by Carol Watson. These are used to fill two large advertising spots in cases where there airport hasn’t managed to sell the space. Unfortunately, for the last 8 months or so, they have been doing their job well and the banners have been in storage!
