Rush Hour's Reverse Commute by taffy

Rush Hour's Reverse Commute

Why is so much traffic going INTO the city???? Planned for the ONS10 movement/motion theme today. I found a great spot on the Morgan Street Bridge overlooking the Blue Line UIC-Halstead stop. Winds were blowing tonight, though!
Thanks for all those nice comments about the Board of Trade building (but no sympathy I noticed for having to work all day!). And for the interesting comments and questions about the teapot processing. Fun to read and as always, appreciated!
Big WOW fav for me!

Fantastic capture. Another bucket list shot but I'll have to wait till next winter. It doesn't get dark until 19:45 currently.

Rushing, rushing, rushing!

Superb shot Taffy. I love light trails but have never experienced with it. This is beautifully captured...
November 13th, 2015  
Amazing light throughout this entire image! Nice composition too!!
November 13th, 2015  
This is super cool, Taffy...love the red lines, composition
November 13th, 2015  
Absolutely gorgeous! FAV

Now, you see I would love to have done something like this! But our small town has what we affectionately call "a rush minute" that happens at 7am in the morning! Pros and cons of living in a small town! Love the red streaks and where some of them cross.
November 13th, 2015  
I dream of getting a shot like this. I'm in a similar position to Debs @dibzgreasley except for the fact that we don't ever have a 'rush hour'. We don't even have a set of traffic lights!
November 13th, 2015  
Very cool! Looks like traffic hour! Fav!
November 13th, 2015  
Cool light trails.
November 13th, 2015  
What a great shot. I love it, Taffy. I have so much to learn and admire your work so much. FAV
November 13th, 2015  
How amazing...great light trails.
November 13th, 2015  
Wow, this is really awesome. FAV

Wow, beautiful skyline!
November 13th, 2015  
Great motion capture and the contrast between moving and still.
November 13th, 2015  
Love love love it! Like Debs @dibzgreasley and Sally @salza I just don't have the opportunity to get shots like this! I am so looking forward to doing some night time city shots with you and hopefully learning how to do them properly! Fav!
November 13th, 2015  
This is such a great movement capture Taffy. Fav
November 13th, 2015  
Super --fav

Super shot, love that steak of colour running through it.
November 13th, 2015  
Wonderful job.
November 13th, 2015  
Stunning night shot. The streaks of lights are wonderful. Fav.
November 13th, 2015  
Fab night trails. :). Perfect for the challenge.
November 13th, 2015  
Fantastic light trails. I must try this again one day, but difficult where I live. At night you are lucky if you see a bloke on a bicycle.
November 13th, 2015  
This is kind of glorious... You are so good at filling the screen, while maintaining balance in the composition
November 13th, 2015  
Fantastic light trails and great star bursts!
November 13th, 2015  
Love it.
November 13th, 2015  
Excellent rush hour shot!
November 13th, 2015  
Superb light trails, fav
November 13th, 2015  
Wow, wonderful capture. I've always wanted to try something like that. Fav!
November 13th, 2015  
wonderful how you have captured this
November 13th, 2015  
Great light trails, a super capture. Fav!! 😃
November 13th, 2015  
this is fantastic - Fav
November 13th, 2015  
It's got to be PP and top twenty with a shot like this, surely? Fave.
November 13th, 2015  
Amazing shot!
November 13th, 2015  
Fab. Is all
November 13th, 2015  
Fantastic light trails. It is odd that the traffic is going back in.
November 13th, 2015  
What a perfect location you found! This image will never happen in sleepy little Lunenburg! We don't even have an overpass!
November 13th, 2015  
Fab, jealous of your vantage point..... and your progression towards retirement which is probably why none of us have any sympathy for you having to work all day!! Ha ha
November 13th, 2015  
Great light-trail image, love the composition with the city on the left and light-trails on the right leading you into the frame -fav
November 13th, 2015  
Super trails...fav.
November 13th, 2015  
Stunning low light picture. Congratulations on making the Trending Page and the PP. Well deserved.
November 13th, 2015  
Fabulous!
November 13th, 2015  
@pamknowler This is a 5 minute walk from my house, so very very easy for us to do. Alternatively, there is a wonderful bridge over Lake Shore Drive with the city to the right and the lake to the left, near the zoo...it might be fun to try a new one too.
November 13th, 2015  
Wonderful light trails
November 13th, 2015  
Wonderful capture!!
November 13th, 2015  
Wow, stunning!! I really enjoy seeing your night photography. It is always spot on! And I got a chuckle from your paranthetical aside about not getting any sympathy for working all day.
November 14th, 2015  
Favtastic!
November 14th, 2015  
Love your light trails Taffy!
November 14th, 2015  
That's just a whole lot of people with some place to be. Super vantage point you have for pictures here.
November 14th, 2015  
I love light trails. Fabulous shot Taffy.
November 14th, 2015  
Fabulous. Great composition, colors, lighting, trails

November 14th, 2015  
Great shot! It has given me an idea for our photo club's upcoming get together- maybe we could do light trails. I'll have to think of a place where a group of people could set up tripods to do it though. The Poconos does not have the same attractions as Chicago!
November 14th, 2015  
You are so good at night shots- must have plenty of patience and a good set up! fav
November 14th, 2015  
Awesome shot!
November 14th, 2015  
Fabulous.
November 14th, 2015  
A fav, such a brilliant shot.
November 14th, 2015  
I love this!! Amazing capture!
November 14th, 2015  
FAV -- those red lines are luscious! Who'd think traffic could be beautiful?
November 15th, 2015  
spectacular!
