Here’s a lighthearted video as we sign off for the weekend: photographers Larry Chen and Joe Ayala recently found themselves stuck overnight at Dallas Fort-Worth Airport with $30,000 in photographic equipment (including Canon 5D Mark IIs and GoPros, so they decided to make best use of the opportunity and film themselves fooling around in the empty airport.
You can find out more about how they did this in an interview the duo did with Jalopnik.

Sit around long enough near an airport and you can shoot photos like these — stacked long-exposure images that make airplanes look like fireflies streaking around the night sky. Flickr user Terence Chang visits various locations around the Bay Area to capture these photographs of San Francisco International Airport.
Last week a United Airlines flight out of Denver International Airport was returned to the gate after being ready for takeoff when a passenger noticed “suspicious behavior” and notified a flight attendant. The plane was evacuated and swept for suspicious devices, the suspicious passengers were taken and questioned, and the flight was delayed by 2.5 hours. Now it’s believed that the passengers were simply taking pictures during taxiing, though the fact that two of the picture takers were of Middle Eastern descent likely had something to do with the “suspiciousness”.
