On the runway of Beijing Capital International Airport, Beijing

Sunset#0190

This photo was taken on a shuttle bus while it was driving through a busy runway, taking passengers from the terminal to the aircraft. This was a restricted area and as usual, there were signs reminding us no photos… so this was taken at a great risk!

For those who follows my blog for a while might think I am a lucky guy who gets to travel a lot for fun, but this is not true! The reason I can frequently travel is mainly due to business trips, and also because of this reason, I can only bring hand carry luggage with me (to avoid long waiting time with the checked-in luggage collection). As I already needed to bring my laptop and personal items, it is usually impossible for me to bring a camera as well (also my boss might suspect I am coming for leisure more than for work?). Mobile phone then becomes my best photography partner, and so I pick my phone quite carefully, with considerations mainly on its photography capabilities (I am not going to advertise any brands here).

Many airports have rules in the restricted areas, mainly involving the usage of mobile phones and cameras. Though I seldom see anyone getting caught violating these rules, sometimes the guards might just ask you to put them away if they see you. And so… if you see a great sunset, then what should you do? Take the photo of course! Practice well and you can easily take out your phone/camera, take the picture and put it away in just 3 seconds! It’s worth getting shouted at as long as you get what you want and don’t hurt/disturb others.
