"Please be careful when opening the overhead bins." You just might find a giant bottle of juice in there that could fall out and crush you.
By the time they started serving breakfast somewhere over Germany I had already been fiddling with the camera for some time. Outside the window was nothing but haze. Haze, in fact, had delayed our departure from Amsterdam. Haze in Rome, the destination, but probably also haze in Amsterdam and haze just all over Europe. Haze, haze, haze. Everywhere haze. So the usual poor visibility when flying plagued me yet again.
Back to the juice and my still life not so still in the sky. I'm not sure how the juice tasted. I don't think I ever drank it. I prefer milk in the morning. It sat on my night stand in Italy for some time and then eventually disappeared. Maybe, feeling unloved by me, it went back to Amsterdam to find a new friend on different flight.
And with this I've finally added another country to my list. I could have added Holland, too, but that'll wait for another time.

Quite a whitty arrangement. From this I learn that there are more people in the world than me that get bored in airplanes.

I had one of these tonight and not for the first time. I like the taste and the lumps of fruit. However there are many more ingredients than Mango & Peach. I can understand about the haze and I like your note. The bottle is slightly too centred but you probably didn't have much room for manoevre.

Je remarque que les voyages prédisposent à des interrogations ! ;o)
Idée originale, l'éclairage fort lié, je suppose à l'éclairage du hublot ne devait pas être facile à maîtriser.
J'aime bien cet aspect photographique.
Je reviens demain

Interesting arrangement, Paul, witty and graphically nice. A fun way to kill time on a plane, and good descriptive notes, too. Greetings from San Jose, CA (business trip).
P.S. I'm curious about the location; I don't think that the state of Thüringen even has an international airport.

Hi Paul, funny note and combination of the photograph. See, buy fly is KLM, so did you fly KLM? I'm curious what you come up with from the Netherlands.
This is very colorful Paul, just the way you like it, amd the whole photo and note gives me th idea that you're going to share your photo's from Italy with us?

Hehe the drink is awful Paul, maybe a good thang that you didn't try it ;-)
I like this witty pic-text combination and you found the next thing best thing to looking oustside. I can relate to this experience. I added a pic in the WS made during a predominantly grey flight to Lesvos last year. Looking forward to your take on Holand. Nicely done!

Interesting story behind a juice box. After a long time I see a posting. You must be busy huh?

Hi Paul! Interesting experience with the haze all around! Well, congratulations on your 1st photo of Germany, albeit taken indoors. I think the juice looks delicious based from the packaging and its looks. This also looks like a product shoot for the juice brand. Good colors, lighting and sharpness! rgds.

I'm sorry but I don't see what the point of this photo is or what it adds to trekearth other than "adding another country to my list." Airplanes are boring and most people try to sleep through the flight if they don't have an interesting view or person next to them. Your other pictures are great, but this is a disappointment.
