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.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Art Photographers of Minnesota, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

      The audio they play between terminals is also wild the way it echoes around redundantly. I think the soundtrack would go great with this pick.

      So many vanishing points! Ahhh! Haha. :) I love the long exposure effect and the blend of the colors since they're always changing. Great idea!
