Seats and trays in upright position. Beware of sneaky photographers.

Riding in a Southwest Airline jet for a ride back to Midway in Chicago, I initially sat next to this nice lady because it was in the row with leg-room.

 

After a few minutes, when it became clear that the flight was only about 60% occupied, and that a similarly leggy seat was still available next to the door on the other side of the aisle, I excused myself and went to sit over there.

 

I'm a big man with wide shoulders. I make little people feel uncomfortable, I think. I try not to crowd when I can help it--even when seated next to pretty women. :)

 

Then, later, in the air, I decided she looked so peaceful and content reading her book (the latest Harry Potter best seller), and so pretty, I had to capture a shot.

 

I like the blown out windows. It lends a nice, soft glow to the shot.
