"waiting patiently"

So we made the dash and arrived at the airport on time... but only to find it virtually empty:
We were given to understand that all flights had been delayed until "further notice"...

The best alternative to waiting impatiently is to wait patiently!:-)

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

Not so hard to wait patiently when you have a beautiful sunset like this. Hope you made it onward finally! If just for the pictures to come alone! :)
