Psychadelic Tunnel at O'Hare

Every time I pass through O'hare, I tell myself I need to take a picture of this place, and finally did tonight. This is the underground peoplemover to get between B and C gates at O'Hare international airport...


Technique: Shot this super quickly on the way to the gate using a gorilla pod balanced on trash can, remote release, 10mm wide-angle, 5 exposures (f/16, 2-15s). Sharpened, color corrected, and metal blemishes removed in Adobe Lightroom. I think the trashcan action by the guy in the monkey suit was pretty awesome, one guy stared at me for a solid minute while he passed by. I should have shouted "Boo!", he looked so intensely confused.
