Spotting from a hotel Pt. 1 @ ATL

Well, I finally got an actual camera. Thus, I decided to go to the Renaissance hotel next to ATL and spend 2 days doing nothing but planespotting.

I think I need to get a life. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Anyways, the person checking me in was nice enough to put me on the top floor with a awesome view of the airport (which you will see).

Soโ€ฆ I have nothing else, time for my decent photos!


First off, a shot that I am happy to have gotten. None of my other shots that included a B712 turned out so this is special. (For me at least).

These people are lucky.
They get to fly a A359 on a domestic route. NOT FAIR! ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

After 8 hours of long planespotting, the sun sets over the Delta Maintenance hanger.

Well, after my really bad comments, and decent photos, I hope you managed to finish this topic. ๐Ÿ˜‚
Anyways, I hope your day is good, and tomorrow is even better!

I saw over 800 planes take off and land on 1 side of the airport in 2 days. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Nah bro planespotting is spending your time doing something actually useful. Youโ€™re already several steps ahead of all the lazy gamers everywhere.

Nice pics! ๐Ÿ”ฅ especially the Delta 737 and the building with the sunset

Thanks!
The Delta 737 is one of my favorite shots too.

Yeah even if youโ€™re doing the same thing over and over, if itโ€™s useful at all, itโ€™s great ๐Ÿ‘Œ especially if it gets you off the couch.

I was just sitting in a chair for most of it. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Whatever ๐Ÿ˜‚ itโ€™s still more useful than sitting on a game eating junk food, sacrificing sleep, nutrition, and real friendships with friends and family.
