Los Angeles -- Passengers sitting near me must think I am a novice flyer. My face is pasted to either the window or the view finder of my camera focused on the ground during most of the flight. My muse extends beyond beautiful landscapes below; moreover, it's identifying familiar roads, buildings, mountain trails and landmarks I visit regularly.
