Not So Buena #8


Title: Underpass
By: Mojoey
Where: Buena Park, Ca., at the 5 and 91 freeways.
When: October 14, 2008 at ~ 7:30 AM
Equipment: Nikon D300 - 1/200 @ f9


My city is bisected by the 5 and 91 freeways. This detail is part of an enormous interchange. I wanted to show the gray bleakness of it all. It is just so damn ugly - yet is it beautiful at the same time. On a side note, a 75-year-old security guard could not understand why I would want to take this picture. When I told him it was a compulsion, he said, "you mean a drug thing?"
