How to drive home through traffic in 56 seconds

Rush Hour

This image was not terribly hard to create once I was in place on the bridge. The hard part was trying to find a place to park, and standing on the bridge feeling like I might be robbed at any moment. It only took a few frames to get the exposure right. Then I just had to time it so I would have streaks of light in every lane. Even though it was rush hour, I had to wait for all the lanes to be occupied. It is one of my all-time favorite Los Angeles shots.
