Like the Pan Am photo. Back in those days you had plenty of leg room and nice wide seats. Now you are packed like sardines.

Yep! I paid a $25 extra fee to get both a row closer to the front of the plane and with a wider space, both going and coming home. I hate having to do it, but if they are available I get them. After a 3-4 hour plane ride sitting in the regular isles, $25 feels like a bargain, even if it is not.

Yeah it's crazy, all the seats are in second class but some cost more than others. They try to squeeze every penny they can out of you. When I traveled often and quite a few years ago, drinks were free and so was the meal. Now you have to buy a box lunch on the plane if you want to eat. Best to make sure each piece of luggage does not weigh over 50 lbs or they will get you for that too. I hate flying now days.

Yes, and it's just gonna get worse after April 1 when all the TSA and tower people start being scheduled off one day a week due to the spending cuts. There's no telling what running the security gauntlet is going to be like after 4/1.

Was in Boston/NYC this week. Didn't have a change to take many photos, but thought this one came out ok.

It certainly did! Is that over near Harvard? Looks like a bridge I drove over last August when I was returning my rent car.

Its the bridge that crosses over to MIT, so not too far off. Did you rent from an Enterprise in Cambridge? This is actually right after I dropped my car off from there, and then walked the 3 or so miles to South Station to catch a bus out of town. I didn't have too much time so I didn't take too many photos, and the lighting was average.

I bussed it to NYC, but didn't grab any photos the one day I was there.

That's the Harvard University or as some people call it, the Mass Ave Bridge take your pick as both names apply.

By the way Drew, That's a nice photo with a subtle HDR treatment.

Thanks Zig. I just went into iPhoto and pulled up the shadows a bit, heightened contrast, but otherwise didn't do much. There is an adjustment that says definition, which I put up 10 percent, so maybe that gave it the hdr look.
