Airports are exciting and stressing. They get my heart racing and sinking. The security screening and lack of any system that makes it a consistently efficient process is the aspect of airports that frustrate me more than any other. They are essential, but there must be a way to make them work better. It is this part of airports that I see as the biggest hurdle to having a better travel experience. There must be a way to make them less clumsy and more seamless.

As soon as I get past that barrier I feel that I have entered the world of escape. Even if it is for a work trip, there is a feeling of buzz and discovery that sweeps over me as soon as I get past security. I have been through airports thousands of times, and yet they still thrill me.

On a recent trip through London Heathrow Terminal 5 on a trip to Berlin, I took a series of pictures that captured the things that I think about and are part of the experience. Below are the photos and why I took those photos. What do you think about airports and the experience? What else would you have taken pictures of?
