Rode the motorcycle out to DTW (free parking) for a few hours of shooting; McNamara parking deck and Wick Rd.
I see this four engine plane coming. A peek through the lense and I get my first shot just to realize I have only one more shot left on the CF card. I should have taken it. Changing cards, slowly due to numb fingers, I missed decent additional shots. First time I shot the A340 at DTW.
