The Blue Storm Over Denver International Airport

The TSA never liked me and I didn't expect them to start on this day.

 

I have a general distaste for their attitude, their silly policies where they search grannies for show, and their little uniforms meant to quell the suspicions of a doting public who will succumb to authority with nary a question.

 

So, I was surprised when I was able to charm a new female TSA employee into letting me onto the tarmac to take a photo of the storm. I was down at the end of one of the terminals catching a little plane to fly over the Rockies. A major storm was brewing in the middle of the sunset, and there was no good shot from inside the terminal. Anyway, I went out there, with the permission of that one gal... then started shooting until another TSA guy came over with a much more important uniform, scowling away. That was a short conversation. No worries everyone, your government is protecting you from people like me.

 

Oh -- I made a new "Gallery" here on Flickr (Trees of Inspiration) -- you guys tried that new feature yet? It's cool! www.flickr.com/photos/stuckincustoms/galleries/7215762224...
