Sun Rises Over Japan (December 10 [?] 2000)

Taken (with my Minolta) on a flight from Los Angeles to Taipei.

The effects of light I discussed in an earlier entry--those that follow movement, and cause temporal disorientation--were even more apparent during this flight to New Zealand, during which I stopped in LA, Taipei and Kuala Lumpur (then looped back to Auckland), and consequently lost all sense of the actual date. By the time I arrived, it appeared as if three days had passed (hence the question mark in the title).

Technical note: I had trouble uploading this image. Sorry about the size (a bit small), and also for the flecks of dust; I believe this was residue on the scanner.
