Highway 280is one of the major freeways in the SF Bay Area. One day after lunchI drove to a walking trail nearby workfor the first timeand parked right under the freeway. I felt minisculenext to the supporting columns and decided to take a few shots.

Interesting point of view.

Thanks, Ladyhawk. Well, I thought so. The supportingcolumns are actually much bigger than they appear on the photo (the freeway is very high up at that particular point). Next time I go ther, I'll try to shoot at different angles to see if I can capture its size a bit better.

You've captured some beautiful interlacing concrete lamdha letters outdoors serving as supporting columns. The opposite light which required a jump for a high aperture as f=9, was not very helpful though, was it?

No, not really. To be honest, I think I can do better with a better camera and the sun at a different position. If tomorrow is not raining, I'll drive there again at lunch time and take a few other shots. Now that a have a 12X, it might be interesting.

That's what I also meant in my last post, Tullio.
But your point of view, as Ladyhawk also suggested and I also emphasized, makes this shot really worthy. After all, it is the artist who sees the meaning in the seemingly meaningless. I think a wide angle will be more beneficial in this case than zoom capability.

You're probably right, bahadir. The wide angle reproduces the grandiosity of the architecture while the 12X zoom reproduces the details of it. Hopefully.
