Photohunt: Long


The photohunt theme this week is long. We had a long wait at Newark Airport a few weeks ago when flying home from my birthday celebration in Manhattan. I amused myself by taking photographs of the AirTrain while waiting in the long security line.
As far as trains go, the AirTrain isn't particularly long but the tracks extend quite a distance. The train serves both for on-airport-service between airline terminals, as well as for travel to and from the airport via the Newark Airport train station. I believe this is a first for me. I am only posting one photograph for the hunt so my long photohunt is actually quite short for me.

You can find other photohunters at the links below. The first link will take you to the home of the hunt, where you can find out how to join the hunt, if you are interested. You can also find other participants at that link. The second link is to photohunters on technorati. Saturday is the official posting day but I'm always early.

They are longer than we imagine, but move faster than lightening. Great photo, and glad you finally made it through the security line to post for this week. Have a good weekend.

I am very happy that I don't have to fly for work now. I can remember flying in America being fairly pleasant in the 1980s and 1990s. Not so now. Even here in Australia, the security screening is pretty tedious. My memories of Newark Airport is the very basic transfer area for People Express. That was the first airport I landed in when I first came to America in 1984. My first sites were the New Jersey Turnpike. Delightful.

Security screening here has increased enormously, just like everywhere else. Great take on this week's theme

ideru said...

is that a no driver monorail? i love riding trains :D nice photo

Katney said...

That train is a perfect subject for long. I have included a train, too--on a much longer track. And I just saw a VERY long train picture. A lot of variety this week.

Lana G! said...

Oh yes! Have memories of that train! Great photo for the theme!

Drew said...

Newark airport, that is one of my ones to avoid, along with Philly.

Mine will be up at midnight EST.

All that riding and expense for a plane ride. The train looks clean environmentally. It's a great photo.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I love the different "long" ideas that people have had today! Nice shot.

danielctw said...

The tracks... yeah, it's gonna be a long way from home.

Here we have LRT = light rail transits on beams

Wow. I haven't been back to jersey in almost 10 years - they have an airtran now. Really cool!

I hate waiting in a long queue too :)

Lynn said...

The good news when in a long line is we can observe people and other things in our surroundings. :)

WilStop said...

Oh! A certified long one!... Thanks for dropping by mine...

david mcmahon said...

Patience is definitely an acquired virtue.

Loved your thoughts on cameras (posted as a comment on my site). Have replied by email ....

Carver said...

Thanks so much to all the photohunters for visiting. This has been another fun hunt.

Sue said...

Great idea for the theme! I too hate long waits. I remember the days when we could just walk over each others borders. Times have changed and not in a good way.....Happy photo hunting, and thanks so much for stopping by :)

Anonymous said...

long post or short post...i will come n visit your blog...it is just that sometimes I am absent minded and my blog roll is not up to date. :)

have a great week ahead. i like the air train. it is new to me.

Dorid said...

ooh... those things scare the willies out of me. Had to take one at LAX once!

Dragonheart said...

Nice photo! Sounds like a cool train!

shiera said...

I visited the AirTrain website... that's really convenient. Unlike the airports I know, there's no direct transportation between the international and domestic terminals.

Theresa said...

Good narrative to your long phot. The security line is a good one, not too sure people would be happy to pose for you though.

Heather said...

GReat long shot. :)

Janet said...

I love this shot...looks so free and airy!

Thanks for visiting!

JC said...

I've been bumped to Newark...just the word "Newark" reminds me of "long"...

Great shot of the AirTrain!

lissa said...

I heard about AirTrain but never rode in one.

Another great choice for Photohunt. Hope you enjoyed your New York Birthday trip.

Have a great week!

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Great shot, I have traveled on that train quite a few times, even in a wrong direction ;-)

Thanks for visiting.

claudie http://www.lazaza83.fr said...

Great photo and very interesting post about train! I hate wait but sometimes we haven't the choice!

alisonwonderland said...

lots of "long"-ness going on here!

happy belated birthday!

Siani said...

Great pics for this week's theme. I think I'd enjoy a trip on that train, although you'd have great difficulty getting me on a plane. Have a lovely weekend!

My LONG pics are up at Siani's Pot-Pourri.

the teach said...

Carver, that Air Train and its tracks come all the way out to Queens and run along the Van Wyck Expressway...but maybe you know that.

come visit my Photo Hunters post at Work of the Poet

and Deb's post at Don't Let Me Get the Flying Monkeys...

A. said...

But it's a great short long PhotoHunt!:) I used to do single photographs once but somewhere along the line I started multiples.

2cents said...

neat one, I never been in a train that travels more than 1o minutes...thanks for sharing.
Mine is up at 4 Seasons and
2 Cents Worth . Hope u can visit me too. Happy Hunting.

Lorian said...

Good choice for this week's theme! My husband just flew in from Newark last night on business. He was telling me how it was obvious that you had to get on another train to go the car rentals; so he ended up riding it a long time!

PowersTwinB said...

Great photo of the train through the airport! I've been at a lot of airports, but not the Newark one, yet. My hunt is up, please come and visit

archie FCD said...

A great post for the theme.

Alas, Blogger (Google) has decided that those of us from different platforms (I am from Wordpress) should not be able to leave links to our own blog. So I have to be either a nonnymouse or a nicked name. So while visiting and appreciating your site is still a joy, it is now quite hard to leave a comment. Please forgive me if I appear to go silent until they fix this problem.

Carver said...

Thanks so much to everyone for visiting.

For Archie,
I wish that blogger hadn't made that change. I'm sorry that it's an inconvenience. I always enjoy your photohunt posts so don't worry if I do comment on yours in the future, I don't expect anyone to comment here. Take care, Carver

Queen of My Domain said...

Very cool picture of the Air Tram. I'm sure it was a long flight also.

peppylady said...

I've never been on a air train before. It looks exciting!!!

My picture is up.

mousey said...

Wonderful entry!

Thanks for visiting earlier.

Patricia said...

Ah, yes! Long lines and long waits at airports! I have ridden the airtran at JFK, but not Newark. It is interesting trying to load one of them when there are 3 or 4 of us and a ton of luggage, too! Hope your weekend is perfectly delightful, Carver, and thanks for stopping by Pollywog Creek. Blessings!

tanabata said...

Long security lines are never fun! Nice photo for this week's theme.

Rach said...

We went to new york a couple of years ago and didn't realise it was the weekend before Thanksgiving until we had a very long wait in newark airport for the flight home!

Sabine said...

Great photo, and also a great means of transportation... Oh, and such fabulous weather!! We have it as bad as it gets over here at the moment - but it's perfect for going to the Christmas Market! ;)

Have a nice Sunday Carver!

Sabine

eastcoastlife said...

We have an Airtrain (called Skytrain) at our airport and it is shorter than the one you showed.

Carver said...

Thanks so much to everyone for visiting. I enjoyed your comments.

GBex said...

hey , I hope I am not that late yet--this is my first time to join the photohunt--and this is my first ENTRY!

idealpinkrose said...

I wanna try this, too!

Carver said...

Thanks for visiting and I'll look forward to the next photohunt.
