600 On A 600: Dana R. Napoleon

Camera 2 is back on the blog today and this post is a little different. Dana Napoleon was host to the camera and although she received the camera from Joann Edmonds in Seattle, her time with the camera took us from Seattle to a poolside in Hawaii. I’ll let Dana explain. All shots taken on Impossible Project Px70 Color Protection film.

From Dana:

I decided to take Camera 2 to work with me. I’ve been a Flight Attendant for many years – I thought “A day in the life” might be fun and interesting !
It’s something that I have wanted to capture for many years now, so, thank you !

I typically work from Seattle to Hawaii as my weekly route – and I always work First Class, so, I am close to the Pilots and cockpit – I thought it would be neat to include some of the things I see in a workday.

Image 1 – the exit door, a very BIG responsibility to all Flight Attendants, we are have to “arm” it at takeoff and “disarm” it when we land, and of course, know how to deploy it as intended in an emergency situation.

Image 2 – Our Captain has a “heads up” display hologram screen that shows him navigational information, it was created by Alaska Airlines, and is now used widely by many other commercial airlines.

Image 3 – The First Officers’ driver seat

Image 4- ME! As soon as I get to the hotel layover, I hit the pool immediately!

Image 5- The old Honolulu Airport garden – classic icon from the 1970’s, it greets passengers when they land 🙂

Image 6- A beautiful leaf in the Airport garden

Image 7- ME again! Shot by my Captain, sitting in the engine of a Boeing 737-800

Image 8- My fellow Flight Attendant holding a First Class breakfast

 

Aloha, Dana

  1. OK, I *GASPED* and yelled, “DANA!” when I saw you chillin’ in the engine. !! I saw a very traumatic video once… that’s all I will say…. I love these photos! And I am jealous of your job. 🙂

  2. What a great series! And, yeah, what a great day job. Thanks for sharing your day in the life, Dana!
