Adam! Dang you've got pure gold here and you only photographed the top of it? Ugh! The building on the far right is to die for and if you composed it with the road in front and ditched the church on the left this would be a home run in anybodies ball park. Holy cow. You need to drive back to Newark and shoot this one again and do it justice. If they had a gong button to go with the like and favorite button I would so gong you for this one. And the real kicker is that it's a master piece waiting to happen.
This is driving by at 55mph on Interstate 280, the overpass metal railing with highway garbage really didn't appeal to this photo..
Ha! I knew exactly how you shot this. But you are sitting on the makings of one hell-a-va good photo. You've got to go back and shoot it again.
Possibly if construction or just one of those slow downs on the highway I will be able to recapture with getting more detail...
Hello Richard I was able to retake this scene traffic was a little slower but still moving around 30mph.
I like the potential of this one better. Is there anywhere that you can park and walk up onto the overpass or is this one of those places where you would get arrested for doing so? When you shoot it lose the church and get more of the red brick building on the right with the road filling the left. And of course you will want to lose the guard rail which has been the bug-a-boo all along. It's got all of the elements to be a Hopperesque photo, which is to say it would be a great all American red, white and blue urban landscape. A cooperative blue sky with a scattering of fluffy clouds would help also.
No there really is no legal way to stand here. This is one of those elevated highway sections from the 50s with no walkway and no shoulder all I need is one car or truck to clip me and then I would be a goner.
We don't want you getting clipped and definitely don't want you to be a goner.
