    The Oakland Maze, where I-80, I-580 and I-880 converge east of the Bay Bridge.

    I wasn’t quite sure what to post tonight, it’s been a stressful few days. Images of highways and architecture are calming – of course, Luna is, too.

    Great perspective in this.

  3. Sukhmandir Kaur Says:

    They looks so stark and alone, but can’t help but wonder if these were bridges recently occupied.

    It is less stressful to see freeways without bumper to bumper traffic.

    WOW, being an aussie, I’d get lost on that thing!!!

    Mine is up as well at WW – Sculptures By The Sea!

    Have a great WW!

    I love the lines in this — nice perspective. I often fail to notice the infrastructure.

    That looks like a roller coaster for cars!

    It looks like I feel!

    hee hee…
    The ugly underside of the Maze, complete with graffiti…

    Great shot. That really is a maze. Amazes me how they build things like that and have it actually work!

  11. CatSynth Says:

    Not a whole lot of graffiti on the underside of the maze, actually. The tag-like elements in this image are effects from the Hipstamatic.

    I wouldn’t want to walk under there. Oddly, it reminds me of a french braid.

    Happy WW!!!

    Highways are calming ??? Why not, everybody has his thing. I prefer looking on the sea !

  14. Snowcatcher Says:

    I like the frame you’ve used; quite the contrast, stark highway and bright, cheery colors. I hope the stress calms and the coming days are better.

  15. Marg Says:

    That is one confusing maze of bridges. Good job whoever built them. They go in so many directions and good job getting a picture of them.

  16. CatSynth Says:

    Driving highways isn’t calming at all, it’s just the visuals that appeals to my aesthetic sense.

  17. Sue Says:

    From this view it reminds me of a roller coaster :) Happy WW

    If you think this is a maze, you need to come see the new DC mixing bowl! It’s nuts!

  19. Beth @ 990 Square Says:

    RE your comment back: I’ll have to remember to take some pictures of the new DC mixing bowl when I’m down in National Harbor in a few weeks. It’s VERY different from the picture you featured more. Even more spaghetti, if that’s possible!

    I love the perspective of this shot.

    Happy WW!

    Good grief! So it’s true: American architects are on drugs!

  22. SandyCarlson (USA) Says:

    Splendid! The maze is a convergence!

    Great leading lines. Glad I’m not driving on it though.
