Photo of the Week!

F 6.4; 1/100; ISO 400; 48mm.

Shot at Los Angeles International Airport.

Los Angeles International Airport (or as it’s more commonly known:  LAX) is among the busiest airports in the world (Atlanta, of all places, has Los Angeles beat) and certainly one of the most connected.  From here, you can fly to every single inhabited continent — sorry, Antarctica! — on any number of airlines.  Of the dozens and dozens of carriers that serve LAX, American Airlines is biggest operator; it has 20 percent of the market share (compared to Delta’s 18% and Southwest’s 16%, the next two biggest airlines).  While the city may evoke images of glitz and glamour, hustle and bustle characterize its airport.  As it’s shown here before a flight:  business as usual.
