Sitting alone and listless on airport lounges while waiting for your flight can become quite dull and rings most true for travelers who can’t wait to reach their destination. With a camera on hand, sometimes we can’t help but search for interesting subjects to shoot and cure that little stretch of boredom. Such is the case of the Instagram users who took these images for our featured hashtag of the week: #AirportCarpets. Because who would have thought that taking a photograph of airport carpets can be Instagrammable, right? It turns out, a lot of passengers are doing this practice while whiling the moments until boarding time.

Here are some images of this week’s featured hashtag #AirportCarpets

Was I even in the airport if I didn't take a picture? #airportcarpet

As expected, feet take the starring role along with the many intricate and colorful patterns of different carpets from airports around the world.
