The Flow of Traffic

The flow of traffic

Given how much I hate the mall around Christmastime, it’s remarkable how often I wound up there this past month. This was taken from the third floor of the mall’s parking garage, which gave a pretty good view of the intersection below.

I’ve always been a fan of this kind of shot. Photography, by its nature, freezes scenes at a specific moment, and we’re usually not privy to what may have happened before or after. Here though, there’s a sense of activity – for example, you can see that the car going away from the camera on the right had his blinker on when I opened the shutter and had applied his brakes by its close. Kind of cool, if you ask me.
