A sample of photographer Alex MacLean’s aerial photography includes this picture of a highway intersection in Albuquerque.
Beautiful. There are several dimensions to this:
1. The interplay of light and dark both from the sunlight as well as the darker roadway and the lighter desert.
2. The modernist twists of the highway ramps.
3. The smallness of the cars, a reminder of the limited lives we lead.
I know highways are concrete entities that lead to traffic and air pollution but I’ve always enjoyed seeing them from above.
