The Friendly Skies


Last November, I was lucky enough to return to Paris to gather more photos for my blog,  Paris Through My Lens.  I took along a traveling companion who is my Meeps' look alike and namesake.  La Petite Meeps went along in my tote.  I photographed her all along the journey and while in Paris for an upcoming presentation for young French students.  She started trip with me in the newly expanded Birmingham/Shuttlesworth concourse.  I asked security guards about photos as we went through TSA and they said that would be fine.  To my surprise the agent let me put her in the bucket and take several photos. The nice gentleman behind me assured me I was not taking too much time and even helped.  For more of Meeps' adventures in Paris, check my blog!

Virginia, I don't know how you do it. On my trip last November I even had a security guard ask to detach the lens from my camera to check the insides. There was no way, after that, that I would say, "Hey, would you mind if I take a few snaps of my Meeps. :-)

Yes, I would agree you were lucky and no one behind you complained..

It's a funny variation on taking a garden gnome around the world!
