I arrived in Fukuoka Airport, several hours before my departure flight back to Korea, and found the upper deck almost deserted. From Wikipedia:
"Fukuoka Airport (福岡空港, Fukuoka Kūkō?) (IATA: FUK, ICAO: RJFF), formerly known as Itazuke Air Base, is an international and domestic airport in Fukuoka, Japan. It is officially designated a second class airport. It is currently operating at full capacity, and cannot be further expanded. Flights stop at 10 p.m. to allow local residents some peace and quiet, starting again at 7 a.m..
The airport is conveniently located for Fukuoka residents in Hakata-ku, South-East of the city centre. It is connected to the rest of the city by subway and road, and a subway from the airport to the business district takes less than ten minutes. Yet its very convenience raises questions and concerns about its safety.
Fukuoka Airport is the third largest passenger airport in Japan. In 2005, 18 million people used the airport, while there were 137,000 takeoffs and landings."
I tried a workshop, to repair the film processing stains, I found after uploading.

Some very nice graphic lines for this interesting composition, which also has a touch of humour to it with the solitary passenger. Perhaps too much choice, when it comes to selecting a seat ;-) TFS.

Bonjour, mon ami Chris,
Infatigable voyageur pour notre plus grand plaisir. Votre qualité de photographe est telle que vous devriez éditer un livre.
Ici, encore, une photographie très bien illustrée.
Excellente année 2008.

Interesting composition, where the single person makes the place even more empty!
A well exposed frame with good details in the architecture...
And I wish that a HAPPY NEW YEAR will come your way!
Seasonal greetings from a chilly Norway,

Avec tous tes déplacements, tu dois en connaître des aéroports dans le monde.
Ton bon cadrage centré qui présente une belle symétrie de l'architecture de la structure aéroportuaire.
C'est un bon cliché pour démarrer 2008 mon Cher Ami !

Excellent ! Great lines, beautiful photo (architecture too) but also great mood and great title - in fact, I prefer generally your photos of wilderness in Mongolia, but once in a while such photo in your gallery is great too and you conveyed well this sense of loneliness that one can experience in those transit halls, specially at night...

Amazing geometry, amazing also to be alone in such a place that is usually so busy. A very strange feeling.

interesting graphical effect by the construction but not a place where I would feel as being a guest. Must be good to leave as soon as possible. The POV is creating depth by the roof and loneliness by the wide capture. Good "cleaning" in the workshop.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

fine one Chris,
good lines, very good perspective, good photo. I like the idea, good photojob, have a nice day.
Cormac (26565) 2008-01-02 7:55
Very nice shot! I really like all those lines in the ceiling, which create an interesting pattern and also seem to all converge down toward those seats and the lone person there. Great work!

Nice point of view to show this beautiful shapes. Interesting architecture structure indeed in your pretty photo.
Wahclellaspirit (4093) 2008-01-02 19:51
I like the balance in the scene as well as the structure of the beams and the lighting. This airport appears very modern even though it has once been an older airbase.
Excellent shot here...
tcht (7565) 2008-01-02 22:38

Hi Chris, I like to see these large interiors. It does seem very empty on this day.
Good clarity and cropping. TFS. Murray.

Belle photo de ce haal d' aéroport, bien grand, il en impose, les grands espaces des aéroports sont imposant et ces réalisations sont superbes.
Je vous souhaite beaucoups de bonheur et de prospérité pour cette année 2008, qu' elle vous soit profitable au point de vue santé et que vous ne manquiez pas d' argents pour mener a bien vos projets.
trekks (14348) 2008-01-03 8:31
Alone and away, Chris and this is a perfect time when you find a camera is your best companion. Taking photos will kill the time and relax you until your flight time. Great shot and such architecture. TFS

Great photo from this airport! I really like the modern architecture and to see the constructions. The symmetry is very nice too and the lonely person is a nice detail. Well done!
jrj (34843) 2008-01-04 4:40
I like this one Chris. The one person completely alone in this huge construction of glass and steel - good story
mikeo (12129) 2008-01-04 10:49
Superb construction, well shown by you! Great architecture, incredible composition of lines, interesting POV...
Did you get rid of all people there to take this photo:)))?
jemaflor (100241) 2008-01-06 10:39
Well seen with this view, interesting effect with lines for symetry and depth, well taken.
pastadog (13111) 2008-01-09 8:06
Hi Chris - Nice shot of this modern architecture, in symmetry and attractive lines... The passenger certainly adds some story and also balance, congrats, Daniel
coco (30439) 2008-01-10 16:21
Simple photo about architecture and also fine work.
Angshu (56760) 2008-01-11 0:38
The lines make thi so graphical. The single person makes this place so lonely! Very symmetric & balanced shot & I like the ceiling a lot. Good work!
foozi (7101) 2009-05-15 5:13
very quiet indeed so much that you depicted the calmnes and graphical composition in a very convincing way. Lovely air and surrounding.
