    Cool picture. I know I've seen that before. 183 wasn't a road I drove on often when in Dallas.

    Nice shot. I like that the red van is the only other vehicle there, dead ahead, and the reflection strip in the hood. In addition to the overpass pattern, of course.

    cjlacz, Thank you! Strictly speaking this is Irving rather than Dallas. But it IS Dallas county, having just crossed hwy 360 heading Eastbound.
    Gromitspapa, thanks
    Nostatic, The Van was going far slower than the rest of the traffic, I got behind her and matched her speed, knowing we were coming up on this interchange.
    The rest of the traffic couldn't wait to speed off and thankfully the road got fairly empty for just a second as we got here.
    Shirokuro, thanks so much for the compliments! It is mine as well ^_^

    I like this one best, too. The mom in me has to say: "be careful!"

    Yup, I used to live in Plano for about 7 years, just until a couple months ago. I didn't realize there was such a great community of photographers down there. You always find the cool stuff after you leave.

    Sorry to have induced such an attack, I take it the memories are not good?

    Re: HWY 183

    My memories of Dallas are great (my best friend still lives there) my memories of my commute are not as good, sometimes a hour or more on a good day (Euless to downtown)

    My commute now in Paducah Kentucky 10 min....

    I was in Dallas last spring for the Leica seminar, workshop. It was in Arlington I think...things have really changed around the Grapevine area.

    Ahhh, understood. The area you see in this picture. is just east of Hwy 360, just getting into Irving/Dallas County.
    I do not think this area was as built up when you lied here. Sadly, the traffic, if anything, is far worse.
    My folks live in west Fort Worth. Everytime I visit it is like a major shock over how much it changes.

    I'm not in the Bay area right now, or I would respond with a shot on Hiway 101 northbound alongside San Jose, where three freeways cross overhead, each on its own level. There's something all-American about such a stack o'roads. On 101, you'd have to be up at 6 am on a Sunday morning to get such an empty vista. When was your photo taken?

    Scott,
    It was taken on Sunday afternoon, around 5pm CST. I just got lucky with the traffic
