Gentle imaginary reader,
I'm guessing that you have reached some level of jacaranda saturation, after all the posts in the past week and a half featuring those things. Frankly, you're probably sick of seeing them. So today we offer a picture that is likely to inspire air sickness even though you're on the ground.
[You will find an air sickness bag in the seatback in front of you.]
This shot was taken during my flight from Vancouver back to LAX a few weeks ago.
The plane was banking to the right over the greater Los Angeles area (as part of its final descent) as I took it, hence the reason the lights from the ground appear to be swirling while the wing is in focus. (Yes, that's the wing.)

Not quite the palate-cleanser you were expecting, was it?
[Please remain seated until the post has come to a stop at the gate and the captain has turned off the Fasten Safety Belt sign. Thank you, and we hope to see you again soon.]
Why was I in Vancouver? you're not asking yourself. More of that dragon boating nonsense. If you'd like to hear about that, leave a comment or shoot me an email.
