THE TRAFFIC-2012-04-03-165

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

I came from Los Angeles and thought I knew what traffic was. But Houston has some of the worst. What really struck me was the overpasses, which cross over each other, sometimes four or five in the same place. Seeing those highways is so awe inspiring to me! It is beautiful, and unique. My friend Rhys went with me to photograph with a 4x5.

I've spent a lot of time in Houston over the last 30 years. Interesting place. You couldn't pay me to live there.

I could submit an endless array of personal stories about Houston traffic. I could act like it's the worst thing that has ever happened to me. I could detail the countless hours of my life I have spent commuting. But I will say this: Houston is bigger in sprawl than any other major metro area, and yet... I'm still only 15 minutes from most anything I might need to get to - well, except my job.
