Fair Oaks in South Pasadena is an Utter Disaster
South Pasadena decided to make drivers turn left before they can turn right by installing those stupid bulbous corners. If you actually turned right before turning left, you’d go right over the curb. I wouldn’t be surprised if some pedestrians eventually get hit by inattentive drivers since pedestrians are actually standing in line with oncoming traffic even if they are still on the sidewalk. Just have a look at all the skid marks on the corner that protrudes out into the street. Now imagine a pedestrian standing right that same sidewalk.
Today I spent a good 30 minutes sitting in traffic around Fair Oaks. Oh how glorious. I had so much time, I took out my camera and shot off a few frames.
This one was my favorite.
I shot this with my Canon S95, brought it into Aperture 3, then Photoshop CS5 where I applied a few Nik filters.
