framing the 210


i ride over this highway every day on my way to class or work. likewise, my wife drives on it to get to work. it's noisy and sometimes congested and a part of our lives whether we like it or not. this image ended up on my camera while i tried to take a picture of something else. i like how the fence is emphasized and the highway is simply background fuzz. what does this say about me?

The depth of field is perfectly set with the emphasis put on the cold, oxidizing steel of the overpass.

I remember back in 1975 or 1976, my buddies and I used to skateboard on the 210 fwy before it was opened. We used the westbound on-ramp at Lake Ave. What a hoot!

WHat a nice shot -- however you got it! I love happy accidents like this.

It says "I like fences more than highways." Very nice man. I think that's just a metal fence but in your picture it looks like an old weathered wood like you'd see on a fence on an east coast beach.
