    I went to the airport to take Pictures this evening::::

    I decided that I would try and take some pictures at Adelaide Airport tonight.

    As I was driving I saw first one then another take off.....surely there would be more. So I parked, got out my car and walked up to the fence....and waited......and waited.

    I got bored, so I took a picture of a sign....



    Then I got enthused. I could see the lights of a plane many miles away, so I took its photo (this is a Massive crop. The plane probably didn't get within 500m of where I was standing)


    And then I waited.....and waited......and waited. Then I turned around
    .....ohhhh dear....

    Nice story. How'd it finish?

    BTW, you nailed that shot of the cop car!

    She said to me "You're going to have to delete that Photo"

    I said to her "No"

    She Said to me "OK.....By the way, are you coming to my wedding on the 27th...."

    Y'see, the nice officer is my Sister in law. She just happened to recognise the car as she drove past and pulled in to say hi.

    Darn ---- a simple and happy ending. You could have embellished it a little for us. You know how we all loves something photographically controversial. Still #3 was a great shot at the end of what we all thought would be an ominous result. Mongo enjoyed your pictorial story.

    Brilliant.

    I got to the third photo and wondered why she was smiling too.
    I rather hastily formed the theory that:-

    A. Hoffy is an incredibly good looking bloke or

    B. The policewoman's partner was beating the daylights out of Hoffy with one of those collapsible truncheons.

    That ending cracked me up. You could have kept us going for a long time on this one.

    I had thought about dragging it out a bit longer....but seriously, being hassled by the cops for taking airport pictures (unless I was on the "Airside").

    Cheers!
