Speed

Oh how I longed to live closer to the downtown area so I could explore taking shots like this one. Long exposures over freeways with loads of vehicles. Although, I realized when I look at this that it could basically have been taken on any ol' freeway with a pedestrian overpass! But I love it because it's downtown Phoenix!

 

I also love the movie Speed, which is the name of the film for my weekly Movie Title Wednesday entry. I don't care how much people hate Keanu Reeves and his acting (or lack of) style...I usually find him entertaining. If I remember correctly, this movie kind of re-birthed Reeves as an action star after being a total dweeb time-traveler in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

 

Speed was such a fun movie, lots of action, intensity, Dennis Hopper and not to mention Sandra Bullock.

 

"Shoot the hostage!"

 

Now, this photo has an extra special quality about it because it's ALSO being used to help advertise the "gallery" I'll be displaying my prints in for First Friday on November 5th and for the rest of that month. You can see it being used on the frontpage of www.daytwelve.org/ and displayed on the official flyer for the event (click here to see it!).

 

If you live in the area, I hope you can make the event and check out my work PLUS the other five awesome photographers there, including my buddies Dee Nichols and Rick Young.
