After a month's break…

It has been over a month since I last posted any photos on my blog, and almost three weeks since we got home from our trip to Japan. It was wonderful spending time with our son's family — especially with little Brianna, who is a joy, an we did get to see some of the local color. And of course, I took lots and lots of photos. I have finally sorted through them, and for the next week or so I am going to try and post a few photos everyday.

I had two camera with me, my trusty Nikon D90 DSLR and my new, pocket size Panasonic Lumix. The Panasonic has a variety of modes for taking photos — including 25 different scene modes. One of them is Ariel Photo, designed to take photos through airplane windows. Naturally, I had to try it out! This first photo was taken shortly after we took off from JFK.

Expand the post for a few more photos from the flight.

Even from 40,000 feet, the Canadian Rockies were spectacular.

After almost 14 hours of flying, several movies, not much sleep, and three meals, the northern island of Japan appeared through the clouds.

Finally, we were able to see the island of Honshu, and Tokyo,  below us.
