I've realized that I post too many pictures of freeways and pedestrian bridges (and often the former viewed from the latter), but I don't care .

This is westbound I-10 in Phoenix, just before the 7th St. exit (which is right before it goes through a tunnel under the central corridor).



I used a b&w action (not sure where I got it, sorry) meant to mimick Ilford Pan F film. I liked how this looked better than the color version.

The picture was taken around 6:15 on a Friday evening. In Los Angeles, a freeway could easily be that crowded at 2:00 on a Sunday afternoon.

This is the widest freeway I've ever actually seen. There are 7 westbound lanes and 6 eastbound lanes. Through the tunnel, there are 6 each way. I know freeways that have more lanes than this exist, but I have never actually seen one. I think there is one in Atlanta with 8 or 9 lanes in each direction. Crazy!

A pretty good photo there Urban. And yes, I can see how it would better in b&w.
What focal length did you use?

ferny, that was taken at 48.5mm (full tele) on the Sony F717, so that's equivalent to 190mm in 35mm terms.

Times like this you always think it should have been made wider. Nice shot, I need to play with B&W more.

If you posted pictures of the scenic byways, you'd have to change your nickname to ruralphotos:lol:

^ Yep, that's what I was thinking of.

That's crazy! That gives LA a run for the money.
